They arrived in Britain between 1933 and 1939, and at the outbreak of war on 3 September 1939 became 'enemy aliens'. They volunteered to serve in the British forces, donned the King's uniform, swore allegiance to George VI and became affectionately known as 'the King's most loyal enemy aliens'. This compelling story includes previously unpublished interviews with veterans and an impressive selection of archive photographs, many of which are reproduced for the first time.

Information from the German Common Knowledge. In der britischen Armee dienten während des Krieges um die zehntausend deutsche und österreichische Staatsbürger. Information from the German Common Knowledge. Aber alle hatten wir eine deutsche oder zumindest deutschsprachige Erziehung genossen und wir alle waren während des ganzen Krieges nach britischem und zumindest teilweise acuh nach deutschem Recht, Deutsche.

While Great Britain had had distant overseas territories occupied in the past . Prior to the arrival of the German forces, the largest employer had been the States of Jersey and the States of Guernsey

While Great Britain had had distant overseas territories occupied in the past, there was little to no advice on how to behave. The British Treason Act 1800, as amended, gave the consequences of treason. Sherwill's objective was to ease the minds of relatives in Britain about the fate of the islanders. German authorities made propaganda usage of his broadcast. Prior to the arrival of the German forces, the largest employer had been the States of Jersey and the States of Guernsey. Under the occupation, everything changed, and working-age people who remained still needed jobs to feed their families and themselves.

Some in France regarded Britain’s decision to evacuate forces from . The German Luftwaffe set about softening Britain up for invasion. Britain in early 1944 was an armed fortress in preparation for the invasion of Western Europe.

Some in France regarded Britain’s decision to evacuate forces from Dunkirk as a betrayal. Almost 192,000 additional Allied personnel were evacuated from other ports in France in late June. However, they consistently underestimated the numbers of aircraft the Royal Air Force had, misunderstood RAF command and control capabilities (including RADAR), which were the best in the world, and made a fatal tactical error in switching attacks from military to civilian targets.

During the Second World War, 10,000 Germans and Austrians volunteered to join the British Forces from the UK. Most were refugees, but there were others also. From 1939 until 1943 most served in the 18 so-called Alien Companies of the Pioneer Corps. After that almost all branches of the services were opened to them and they used this chance to its fullest extent. In this period they were spread over the whole of the Navy, the Army, and the RAF. To write the history of the Alien Pioneers is not difficult. The history of the men who in 1943 were dispersed over all the rest of the services however is the history of the Services as a whole. Peter Leighton-Langer, himself one of the 10,000, has tried to solve this by concentrating on the fate and the actions of individuals, who may or may not be typical for all the others. To do this he has been in direct or indirect contact with some 600 of his former colleagues, whose adventures he cites, often in their own words, to give a picture of the whole. Some of their stories are exciting, others tell of the frustration of men who wanted to get at the enemy, but were treated as untrustworthy because of their nationality. All risked their lives, for had they fallen into enemy hands and been recognised for what they were, everyone would have been treated as a traitor. All knew that. Few returned to their countries of origin. Many stayed in Britain and in due course became loyal British citizens. They should not be forgotten. This is the purpose of this book.
