Abstract

This contribution to a collection on islands examines the representation of the Northern Isles of Scotland and the Second world War. It discusses why these island locations whilst geographically peripheral were strategically important to the war effort even though this is barely registered in the fictional films that depict Britain in the Second world War. A representative group of British films are examined that show and make reference to the Northern Isles.
