Book: De Eeuw van mijn Vader

The other day I finished reading 'De Eeuw van mijn Vader', written by Geert Mak. It's about the history of The Netherlands in the previous century. Just like the 'In Europa' it is written in a clever way and I learned a lot from it.

I recommend anyone who is interested in Dutch history to read this nice book.
