[video] New documentary released about forgotten Battle of Otterlo (NL)

The Battle of Otterlo (April 15-17 1945) was an intense fight, including tanks, flamethrowers and hand-to-hand combat, with more than 1,000 soldiers involved and more than 100 persons killed in action. Remarkably, this battle is mostly unknown to the general public. Consequently, Menno J. de Vries decided to create a documentary about it that visualizes the events. The result was published yesterday on YouTube, at the 76th remembrance day.
