The miraculous rise and fall of the Dutch military during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Dutch Republic exerted significant global influence through military might, yet at the turn of the nineteenth century, almost overnight, Napoleon wiped the nation from the political map. Military Power and the Dutch Republic offers a tactical and logistical explanation for both the “miracle” of Dutch power as well as its swift demise.
Review Quotes
NRC Handelsblad
“A comprehensive study that addresses the human aspect of military exploits in the Dutch Republic, where army and navy operated within a social, economic and political context. Not only is it praiseworthy for the outstanding contributions, the well-chosen illustrations, the clear maps and the design as a whole, but also particularly for the innovative perspectives.”
