Description

The Battle for The Hague-1940 is the story of the first great airborne operation in history. The plan conceived by Adolf Hitler to capture The Hague by surprise, was carried out as part of the Blitzkrieg offensive in Western Europe in May 1940. It became a dismal failure. It also became the only defeat of importance the Germans suffered during their campaign. The very successful course of their offensive, crowned by the surrender of France enabled them initially to keep silent about the set-back or to present it as a side show. Only after the Second World War it was possible to throw more light on the fighting that took place in the Dutch polders.
