The Canadians and the Liberation of the Netherlands

The Canadians and the Liberation of the Netherlands: A History and Visitor’s Guide

by Terry Copp

The liberation of the Netherlands began in the fall of 1944 when the Allies launched Operation “Market-Garden,” an attempt to lay an “airborne carpet” across the rivers and canals of the Netherlands all the way to the Rhine at Arnhem. After fighting to clear the “Breskens Pocket” and approaches to Antwerp, the Canadians took over the Nijmegen Salient, crossing the Rhine and liberating the western Netherlands and its people who had endured the “Hunger Winter” of 1944-45.

In addition to the history, this book offers readers five tours that cover the campaign: Bruges and the Breskens Pocket; Woensdrecht and Walcheren; Market Garden; The Rhineland; and Liberation.

The Canadians and the Liberation of the Netherlands is available exclusively through Amazon.
