Heligoland an island in the North Sea came under British rule in the nineteenth century, a "Gibraltar" of the North Sea. Then in 1890 despite the islanders' wishes, Lord Salisbury announed his intention to swap Heligoland for Germany's presence in Zanzibar. During both world wars, it was used by Germany to control the North Sea and RAF planes bombed the once-British territory. A fascinating and enlightening story of a courageous governor, scapegoated by Salisbury and the many islanders who found their lives changed for ever.
