  Dutch Wars. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
The wars had their roots in the Anglo-Dutch commercial rivalry, although the last of the three wars was a wider conflict in which French interests played a primary role.
When Dutch peace proposals made at this juncture were spurned by the French, a revolution broke out, and William of Orange (later William III of England) took over Dutch leadership from the ill-fated Jan de Witt (July, 1672).
Maastricht was ceded to the Dutch and a trade treaty modified the French restrictive tariffs in favor of the Dutch.

 The Anglo-Dutch Wars
It was fought between the "Stadtholderless Dutch Republic" and "the Commonwealth of England." England gained control of the seas for the summer of 1653.
One of the reasons that the Dutch managed to regain control of the waters was that in 1667, the plague broke out in England, greatly weakening the country.
It is rather ironic that, in 1688, the Dutch William III of Orange became King of England and the former English king, James II, was cast out because of immense dislike.

 The First Anglo-Dutch War 1652-4
However, the Council of State regarded the Protestant Dutch Republic as a natural ally of the English Commonwealth in its apocalyptic struggle against Monarchy and Popery.
Dutch republicans were in favour, but supporters of the influential House of Orange vehemently opposed the alliance, expressing outrage at the execution of King Charles I and refusing to recognise the Commonwealth.
In England, radical members of the Nominated Assembly were in favour of continuing the war to the bitter end, but peace negotiations began when moderates dissolved the Assembly and handed power to Cromwell, who had never been in favour of war against a Protestant nation.

The Dutch were victorious in the Battles of Stromboli and Mt. Etna (1676); however, Admiral de Ruyter was mortally wounded in the latter.
The war of 1672-1678 had been very costly on the Dutch Republic; her Golden Age came to an end, she was no longer capable of playing the role of a great power, and she would see her overseas trade decline.

 "Wartime and Postwar Dutch Attitudes Toward the Jews: Myth and Truth" by Manfred Gerstenfeld
Dutch policemen rounded up the families to be sent to their deaths in Eastern Europe.
In another example of Dutch insensitivity, for several months after the war a number of stateless Jews of German origin were locked up in the same camps as Nazis and their collaborators.
Another aim of the Dutch government must be to reach a generally accepted historical truth about the systematic looting of Dutch Jewry during World War II and the question of restitution thereafter.

 Chaco War: Anglo-Dutch Resource Grab
The war offered untold hardships for both sides, but particularly for the thousands of Bolivian Indians recruited into the Army from their cold, high-elevation altiplano homes, who were defenseless against the extraordinary heat, disease, and thirst encountered in the barren Chaco.
Even today, the savagery of that war is seared into Paraguay's national consciousness, as is the heroic resistance of an entire population, including 11- and 12-year-old child combatants.
Operating from the Paraguayan side was Royal Dutch Shell, which had been granted drilling rights to part of the Chaco region claimed by Paraguay in the period leading up to the war.

 A Social History of the Dutch in Quebec
Those Dutch who are living in Quebec now are primarily the immigrants of the fifties and their descendants.
It is unlikely that they chose their husbands on the basis of place of residence or destination in the new country, or on the basis of economic status of a given region.
Consequently these war brides can be expected to be distributed over the country more randomly than the later influx of Dutch immigrants, assuming a more or less even regional representation of Canadian servicemen in the Forces on hand in the Netherlands during and after liberation.

 How the Bush family made its fortune from the Nazis
And so the Dutch connection remained unexplored until 1994 when I published the book "The Secret War Against the Jews."As a matter of historical curiosity, I mentioned that Fritz Thyssen (and indirectly, the Nazi Party) had obtained their early financing from Brown Brothers Harriman, and its affiliate, the Union Banking Corporation.
In 1945, the former Dutch manager of the Rotterdam bank resumed control only to discover that he was sitting on a huge pile of hidden Nazi assets.
Thus the twin US Archives, Gowen's Dutch source, and the Thyssen family history all independently confirm that President Bush's father and grandfather served on the board of a bank that was secretly owned by the leading Nazi industrialists.

Defense attorney Liesbeth Zegveld on Wednesday argued that her client, Hesam, could not be tried as a war criminal because the conflict had been civil rather than an international war.

The men are being prosecuted under a 2003 Dutch law that gives courts universal jurisdiction over war crimes.
