Table of Contents

"The Hunger Winter amounts to a general history of the Netherlands and its government during its nine months of waiting [for liberation from the Nazis], with the emphasis often most literally on what it felt like... [The story] moves along well, with much natural tragedy, pathos, and drama." Times Literary Supplement."The author ... makes deft use of his own recollections without letting them upset the balance of his book."--The Economist."Henri Van der Zee's book offers a variety of perspectives on the civilian experience of the German occupation of Holland during the winter of 1944-1945 and the famine that resulted from it. The author himself was a child in Hilversum at the time, and personal memories are accompanied by extracts from diaries and letters written by other civilians, as well as information concerning military and political developments that affected both the food supply to and liberation of occupied Holland... very readable." -- The Wish Stream, Summer 1999
