THE ORIGIN OF THE LAND VAN MAAS EN WAAL
The Bommelerwaard is situated in the province of Gelderland southwest if the region Rivierenland. This region exists of the townships of Maasdriel and Zaltbommel and is surrounded by the Maas and Waal. Therefore, the Bommelerwaard is often called “Riviereneiland” (River Island). The water was very important during the war. The Maas formed the frontline, with the German troops at the side of Zaltbommel and the Allied Powers across the river. At the various defense structures of the Dutch Waterlinie it’s clear to see how the water was used to keep the enemy away.
