Tuesday, 14 May 1940 - Capitulation
The 14th would be the last day of the hostilities in The Netherlands [with exception of Zeeland].
Although on the ground no major battles were fought this fifth day, many dramatic events took place. The internationally well-known surface bombardment of Rotterdam, the mystical bombardment of Den Helder [after the capitulation] and of course the capitulation of the [majority of] the Dutch forces.
The journal of this last day has been split in three parts. In the first part we take care of the last skirmishes in the south as well as the dramatic events in Rotterdam. The second part shall address all the other events that took place the last day. The third part is totally dedicated to the capitulation [including 15 May events] and a recap of the five day war.
