Episode Synopsis: In Part 3 of “Island at War,” one of the two British commandos, LaSalle (Richard Dempsey), gives himself up as the Nazis tighten the screws on the islanders. The dead German's body still hasn't been found, but the baron (Philip Glenister) is certain he was shot by the commandos and vows retaliation. Meanwhile, the Nazis are having a tough time wooing local women, but a boatload of “ladies of the night” arrives from France to ease the pressure---on the soldiers if not the townswomen.
