Sinopsis: In 1672, England formally declared war on its commercial archrival, the United Provinces of the Netherlands, marking the beginning of the Third Anglo-Dutch War. In response, the Evertsen Expedition, under the command of Evertsen the Youngest of the Admiralty of Zeeland, launched a surprise attack against the English East India Company fleet, to be followed by raids on major English and French colonial establishments in the Western Hemisphere. "The battle against England had marked Holland's zenith as a world maritime power. The Dutch warriors who had followed the flag to sea had miraculously held the overwhelming forces of both England and France at bay in home waters and had subdued, through force of arms and pure bravado, a vast colonial frontier empire in America." Dutch and English records, journals, secret minutes and narratives are used to reconstruct Evertsen's campaign that included the naval invasion of the Chesapeake Bay, the capture or destruction of hundreds of English and French vessels, and the re-conquest of New York, New Jersey, and Delaware. Ironically, their victory marked the end of the golden age of the Dutch Republic, as they could not sustain "such an empire." Donald Shomette is director of Cultural Resource Management, a historical consultant for the U.S. Navy and the National Geographic Society, and a former staff member for the Library of Congress. Robert Haslach has published several works on Netherlands history, and was responsible for translating and writing the chapters based on the original seventeenth century Dutch logbooks for this work.

From WIkipedia: "The Franco-Dutch War (1672 78), often called simply the Dutch War (French: Guerre de Hollande; Dutch: Hollandse Oorlog), was a war fought by France, Sweden, the Prince-Bishopric of Münster, the Archbishopric of Cologne and England against the Dutch Republic, which was later joined by the Austrian Habsburg lands, Brandenburg and Spain to form a Quadruple Alliance. The war ended with the Treaty of Nijmegen of 1678, which granted France control of the Franche-Comte and some cities in Flanders and Hainaut, all formerly controlled by Spain. The year 1672 in Dutch is often referred to as Het Rampjaar, meaning the year of disaster." Good in good dust jacket. Slightly cocked. DJ has some wear and soiling. Some edge and page soiling noted.
