The Forgotten Battle (2020). The Forgotten Battle: Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.. With Gijs Blom, Jamie Flatters, Susan Radder, Jan Bijvoet. 1944, the Second World War. A British glider pilot, a Dutch boy fighting on the German side and a Dutch female resistance member all end up involved in the Battle of the Scheldt. Their choices differ, but their goal is the same: freedom.

“Although itu0026#39;s a great movie to watch, and looks very good for a dutch production, i think they used a wrong title for it. The battle of the Scheldt is so much more than u0026#39;justu0026#39; the battle at the causeway (Sloedam). Itu0026#39;s such a shame they donu0026#39;t even mention the fierce fighting in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, the bombing of the dikes and flooding of Walcheren whitch caused a great loss of civilian lives and no mention what so ever of the amfibious landings at Flushing and Westkapelle whitch some of the veterans described to be tougher than the landings at Normandy. All in all a great movie, especialy by dutch standards, just missing a lot of what the title suggests itu0026#39;s abbout.”
