In 1916, the Germans constructed a defensive line, the Hollandstellung, running parallel to the Dutch border between Knokke and Antwerp. It's purpose was to repulse an allied attack from neutral Holland but this never ocurred. Read more on my #blog https://www.edwinvanbloois.com/photoblog/western-fr...

Re: The German Failure in Belgium, August 1914

The Dutch book on the opening days of the war and the German operation against Liege is great. I agree that there is hardly any English literature on this, although its briefly mentioned in the guns of August.

Distinguished flying medal

Dear all,

I recently visited some local graves of downed RAF bomber crews and I noticed that a few were awarded the DFM. To learn more about this, I was wondering if there is a publicly accessible database to search for these records?
