Een halve eeuw na de watersnoodramp
1953 – 1958 – 2003
by Wiedijk, Frederik; Scholten, Lars; Scholten, Herman
This book traces the amazing story of the post-1953 Flood era of the Southwest region of the Netherlands during which a number of isolated coastal islands literally were tied to the Delta mainland through massive dams, bridges and other flood control systems. Richly illustrated, the book with text and photographs follows progress of the massive public works program, dubbed the Deltawerken. Although considered one of the world’s eminent engineering feats, the projects execution largely bypassed Dutch emigrants abroad. This book will fill the holes in the story people outside the Netherlands may have missed.
Paperback, 96 pages, Richly illustrated with colour photographs and some b/w archive images, Dutch language. Special import.
