Britain, Germany, and the Struggle for the North Sea

Jan Ruger

  • The story of Heligoland--the small island in the North Sea, wedged between Britain and Germany, which came to stand as a symbol of Anglo-German conflict
  • ... from British colony, to German naval fortress under Kaiser Wilhelm and Adolf Hitler, to British bombing range post-1945, and finally to German holiday resort in the late twentieth century
  • A fascinating and revealing microcosm of the often troubled relations between the two countries, over two centuries and two world wars
