The Netherlands is a European country that is bordered by the North Sea to the north and west, Belgium to the south, Germany to the east; and shares maritime borders with Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom.
In December 1949, the Netherlands was invaded by the Chimera and was quickly overran with severe casualties. After the invasion, Chimeran forces constructed several Gun Towers along the Dutch coastlines. By August 30, 1949, Rotterdam was chosen by British and Maquis forces as the landing site for Operation Overstrike. Despite suffering heavy casualties, human forces were able to secure Rotterdam.
