Dear all,

I have updated my photo blog with a section concering traces of WW1 in Neutral Holland. Despite being neutral during WW1, there are still a lot of silent witnesses of WW1 present in the Netherlands.

Best regards,

Edwin

Both Edwin and Lars have been very helpful to me in researching some stuff in Holland around the Maastricht appendix. They have both provided all sorts of photographs, maps and information that have been just wonderful. To the point that next summer we plan on going there and taking a look at the terrain/river crossings. I have another book coming based on Limburg 1914 and I think it is quite special. My co-author – Dr. Dennis Showalter – has some real insights on the subject. Holland is really pretty interesting in 1914 and I do not believe it has been researched that much in the English language. I

Thanks! I agree, that the role of the Netherlands during WW1 deserves more attention. Even within Dutch history this is much ignored because it is overshadowed by WW2. Although neutral, there is considerable evidence that the Netherlands were pro-German but this is perhaps not surprising when living next to a mighty neighbor.

Regards,

Edwin
