Cool stuff.. Typical annoying "documentary" style though. Did they get permission to use those models?

April 9th

In the early morning of April 9th 1940 the Danish army is alerted. The Germans have crossed the border; Denmark is at war against Europe's strongest army. In Southern Jutland Danish bicycle- and motorcycle companies are ordered out, to against all odds, hold back the forces until the Danish reinforcements can be mobilized. In the fatal hours, we follow second lieutenant Sand (Pilou Asbæk) and his bicycle company - they will as the first Danish soldiers meet the enemy in combat on April 9th 1940.

I wish there were more movies like this that told the stories of minor nations and battles.  Our film makers over here just keep making the same US beating Germany movies again and again.

2012 Russian film about 2008 war in South Ossetia. I never finished watching it, but it seemed good.

Im playing the Netherlands in EU4 right now and it got me interested in their history. Are there any good documentaries about the 80 years war, the dutch colonial and trade empire and/or the power struggle between staatsgezinde and prinzgezindheit?

I cant find anything on youtube :/

I know a few great things in Dutch but that wont help you much.

But Carl Sagan once made something about the Dutch Republic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvY8dQQI13Q

And I'd say, try this channel and see what you can find on it. I'm sure he has a few documentaries about the war of independence and Republic.

Your best bet would be books though, there's a large variety of books in English about Dutch history.
