Dear Argosy - you've made my day - my order (Netherlands at War, 1940-1945) arrived on my doorstep this morning unheralded and very, very welcome. My sisters and I are Dutch immigrants in New Zealand and we all lived through that war 60 plus years ago as young kids. We had occasion to share what we remembered recently - and now you've supplied the book. I can't tell you what this means... - Dorothea B.
