Situation on the 17th of May, end of the day - may 1940

The Germans are in control of the east part of Walcheren and Zuid-Beveland. The map clearly indicates the Allied positions in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen at the end of the day, and the short cut the Germans took to be as expeditious as possible in cutting off French and Dutch forces at Walcheren. Many Dutch units remained trapped in the west of Walcheren.
