Nota d'ambito

Used for discussions of the German invasion of the Netherlands. (en-US)


German armed forces invaded the Netherlands as part of Fall Gelb (Operation Yellow), the invasion of Western Europe, on May 10, 1940. In the ensuing battle, Rotterdam and its harbor was heavily bombed and the Dutch reliance on flooding was not effective in the face of the airborne attacks. Dutch forces surrendered on May 14, and Queen Wilhelmina and the government went into exile in England. (en-US)
