Caught in the Crossfire



The Dutch in Wartime: Survivors Remember is a series of books with wartime memories of Dutch immigrants to North America, who survived the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands.

Book 7, Caught in the Crossfire, covers the experiences of civilians living in the area where Allied paratroopers landed during Operation Market Garden (the Battle for Arnhem, a Bridge too Far). The towns and villages in which they live become the battlefield. They are bombed, shelled and shot at. But despite the danger and destruction, they welcome the liberators and help them where they can.

Designed and written to be easily accessible to readers of all ages and backgrounds, these books contain important stories about the devastating effects of war and occupation on a civilian population.
