Allied invasion of France cuts off Germans in Channel Islands, 8/12/1944 - GERMANS ISOLATED ON CHANNEL ISLANDS LONDON,...
GERMANS ISOLATED ON CHANNEL ISLANDS LONDON, Aug. 12—(AP)— Germans on the channel islands of Jersey and Guernsey have been cut off completely from their Nazi comrades in France by the American grip on the Cherbourg and Brest peninsulas and the Allied naval control of surrounding waters. They have heavy guns, however, which they are using to invalidate, largely, the American- captured ports of St. Malo, on the Brittany Peninsula, and Granville, in Normandy.
