Island at War is a British television series that tells the story of the German occupation of the Channel Islands.
It primarily focuses on three local families: the upper class Dorrs, the middle class Mahys, and the working class Jonases, and four German officers. The fictional island of St. Gregory serves as a stand-in for the real-life islands Guernsey and Jersey, and the story is compiled from the events on both islands.
The invasion by the Germans of the Channel Island St. Gregory appears imminent, and evacuations are begun.
