…Liberation and the Hundred Days 1813-1815

"When the first hastily organized Dutch troops fought off the French at Breda in December 1813, their commander wrote that their behavior under fire had been worthy of praise. In order to prove to the allies the Dutch were willing and able to help drive away the French, a new army had to be built from scratch.

Being pedantic "Dutch" in the very title is a bit odd.

It can be so confusing. Holland is but one province of the modern Netherlands, but the couple I met outside the West Ham ground three weeks ago had travelled across from Amsterdam and had no idea about this. Belgian troops contributed massively to 1815, but were far from "Dutch". The Low Countries, The Austrian and Spanish Netherlands, Walloon, Flemish etc etc…..
