Nazi Germany’s invasion of the Netherlands in May 1940 marked the beginning of five years of terror for the Dutch people. They faced oppression and death with remarkable stoicism, but nothing could save them from the Hunger Winter of 1944-5, when more than 30,000 people died of starvation.

In this time of unimaginable despair, Canada came to the rescue, playing the largest role in liberating the Netherlands and ending the Nazi reign of terror. The Canadians gave the Dutch freedom — and food — and out of such dark times an eternal friendship was forged.

Told through interviews with Dutch survivors and Canadian veterans, with hundreds of photographs, Canada and the Liberation of the Netherlands, May 1945 delves into this chapter of history.
"The people of the Netherlands even today are grateful to the people of Canada and to the Canadian veterans of the battle of the liberation of the Netherlands. This book will tell readers why the Dutch love Canadians." - Richard Rohmer, Canada and the Liberation of the Netherlands, May 1945.
