Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Postcard image celebrating liberation of the Netherlands, c.1945.  I don't know if this is specific to Holland and other provinces had similar postcards published or not.

Holland is often used instead of The Netherlands Smiley
Both are the same Smiley

My topics are about my personal opinion, my thoughts and what I think. They do not reflect the official opinion of the ministry of defense of the Netherlands.

Holland free again

'Duitschland' is old style Dutch writing. In German its Deutschland, the reason why many Americans mix up the two countries.
The 's' was in lots of cases written and spelled as 'sch'
The German Eagle now seems to be a 'featherfree' chicken or turkey, very interesting postcard!
