Description:
'On 2 July 1940, the German military occupied the island of Alderney [...]. What followed was an intensive programme of slave and forced labour, resulting in the construction of monumental fortifications that forever altered the landscape of this small island. Drawing on more than a decade's worth of historical, forensic and archaeological research, this book presents the first detailed investigation of the lives of the thousands of labourers sent to Alderney and the landscape they inhabited. Approaching sites connected to labourers as crime scenes and piecing together new evidence from archives across the world, it demonstrates that Alderney was closely linked to the wider system of forced and slave labour in Europe [...]. For the first time, the names of many of the victims have been identified, as well as the possible locations of mass and individual graves that contain their remains' -- Cover.
