This a very detailed description of the Canadian and British armies clearing of the German Army from the approaches to the city of Antwerp. Often criticized for not keeping up with the other Allied Forces, this Allied force faced incredible obstacles in prying the enemy from their positions in Belgium and Holland. They were often fighting in water and/or mud because it was frequently raining and if that wasn't the problem, the Germans broke the dikes and flood the polders. Includes some photos and what I found to be inadequate maps that did little to aid me in following the battle's many facets. ( )
