For a small area of just 45 square miles, the sublime Jersey military history is all too evident in the built environment as you travel around the Island. But that history goes even deeper in that the very status of the Channel Islands has been moulded by it. When you have a European front line on your very doorstep for over 600 years, you are going to find evidence of wars, battles and the different arms races throughout history as the technology of warfare developed. Being able examine and learn about this, often finding different eras covering not just different centuries but different millennia, makes Jersey pretty unique!
