Henry Toussant Character Analysis

A man who, after Juliet arrives on Guernsey, writes her a letter about tormenting German soldiers with his whistling. He also writes about the German brothels and the women who worked there. Toussant believes the women didn't want to be there, and he often witnessed them sharing food with the Todt workers. When Toussant's aunt insulted the women after they all died trying to cross the Channel, Toussant defended the women. He no longer speaks to his aunt or his mother.
