One comment on “A Plea For Peace – But An Invasion Continues – May 15, 1940

  1. After Germany surrendered and the royal family returned to Holland, Queen Wilhelmia ordered her son to burn all the royal residences that had been occupied by the Germans. He attempted to reason with her, as it would have entailed millions of dollars of property going up in smoke. Ultimately, he refused. She was reportedly furious about his refusal, and never quite forgave him.

    You gotta love a grand old dame like that.
