In dedicating these pages to JULIANA, Heir to the Throne of the Free and Independent Kingdom of the Netherlands, know that I give expression to the sentiments that are foremost in her own heart
if I inscribe these chapters to the memory of those valiant men of our beloved Zeeland who died while trying to preserve and maintain that most cherished of their possessions: THEIR LIBERTY
