Hollandstellung

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.
