A true story in the Channel Islands. It would've been great if King George and Winston Churchill did more to help the people resist Nazi occupation.

Like what, for instance?

At the time of the invasion of the Channel Islands Britain stood virtually alone, and the location of the Islands nearer to France than U.K. mainland meant any seaborne attempt to dislodge the invader would have been obvious to a blind man on a galloping horse. There were no aeroplanes to spare, as the RAF were becoming involved in the Battle of Britain, attempting, fortunately with success, to keep Hitler’s maniacs from overrunning the whole country.

Kings, even during WW2, were no more than figureheads, having had no executive power for many years, and whatever people think of Churchill in retrospect, his mindset as a wartime leader involved expenditure of the meagre resources available for maximum benefit, regrettably the Channel Islanders would have been considered expendable towards achievement of the greater result.

I realize that, but it still would've been great. At least after D-Day, they had a better chance.

The Channel Islands had no strategic value to anyone, British & later allied command were quite happy to let the Nazis waste enormous resources fortifying and garrisoning the islands, to no-ones benefit other than a feather in Hitlers cap.
