BELGIUM: THE OFFICIAL ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED, 1939-1940., N/A

Author Name    N/A

Title   BELGIUM: THE OFFICIAL ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED, 1939-1940.

Publisher    Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs / Evans Brothers, London, n.d.

Seller ID   23917

110 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. 4 b&w illustrations, 5 fold-out maps - collated. "The invasion of Belgium and the Netherlands in May 1940 will remain one of the outstanding events of the second Great War. This volume, issued by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, sets forth the official record of these events and includes all the important documents relating to them, some of which have not been previously published. Germany tried, as in 1914, to shift the res p o n s i b i lity for her crime on to her victim. The papers here published show, however, that the precautions taken by Belgium against German aggression were fully justified by the information received by the Belgian Government. This informatio n wa s dr am at ic ally confirmed when a German plane which crash-landed on Belgian soil in January 1940 was found to contain the orders for the Luftwaffe's part in a large-scale invasion of Belgium. That documentary evidence is reproduced in these p age s. L ear nin g f rom her past experience, Belgium had been preparing from 1930, and even before, against the menace of a new German aggression. The documents here presented prove that this grave preoccupation never ceased to inspire her po lic y in th e ye ars prec edin g the conflict." Book is slightly cocked, has scattered tiny foxing marks on edges of text block - mainly on top edge, minor rubbing. Dust jacket has two large edge tears - archivally taped, browning to spine and at upp er ed ge, some area s of very light edge wrinkling, a few tiny soiling specks, soft crease down spine. Very Good-/Good+
