Germans of 1.KD at Coevorden

The 1.KD entered the Netherlands prominently via the ancient fortified town Coevorden. An impregnable bastion in ancient times, but in May 1940 not quite so. Although quite a number of casemates had been constructed on the important cross-roads and the nearby canal, the Germans had little problems running the few dozen Dutch border defenders off.

The picture shows a unit of the 1.KD near the woods around Coevorden.
