Today, 73 years ago Germany started a ground- and air (paratroopers) attack. In order to overrun Holland. The battle lasted from 10 May 1940 until the main Dutch forces surrendered on the 14th after Rotterdam was bombarded. Dutch troops in the province of Zealand continued to resist the Wehrmacht until 17 May when Germany completed its occupation of the whole nation.
