May 1940: The Battle for the Netherlands (repost)

May 1940: The Battle for the Netherlands (History of Warfare) by Herman Amersfoort
English | May 30, 2010 | ISBN: 9004184384 | 462 Pages | PDF | 116 MB

In May 1940, the Netherlands were overrun by German armed forces. The five-day campaign might seem to be a prime example of Blitzkrieg, which led shortly afterwards to the rapid and unexpected overthrow of France. This book, based on the newest scholarly research, argues that this is too simple a view. Even though the German assault on the Netherlands made use of tanks, aircraft and airborne troops, it was still a classic campaign against a weak opponent in a theater on the margins of Fall Gelb.

This book provides a comprehensive account of Dutch history in the "long" nineteenth century. In this fascinating and instructive period the country saw extremely rapid population growth, awesome death rates, staggering fertility, some of the fastest economic growth in the world, a uniquely large and efficient service sector, a vast and profitable overseas empire, and relative tolerance. This is the only single-authored book currently available on this crucial period of Dutch history, and it will be of central importance to Dutch specialists, as well as European historians more generally.

A Key to Dutch History (repost)

A Key to Dutch History By Frits van Oostrom, Hubert Slings
2007 | 228 Pages | ISBN: 9053564985 , 9048508061 | PDF | 10,4 MB

Many think they know the legends behind tulipmania and the legacy of the Dutch East India Tea Company, but what basic knowledge of Dutch history and culture should be passed on to future generations? A Key to Dutch History and its resulting overview of historical highlights, assembled by a number of specialists in consultation with the Dutch general public, provides a thought-provoking and timely answer. The democratic process behind the volume is reminiscent of the way in which the Netherlands has succeeded for centuries at collective craftsmanship, and says as much about the Netherlands as does the outcome of the opinions voiced.
