From NATO Vehicle Guide (GDW 0526)

The division was alerted on 20 June 1996 and declared fully mobilized on 21 June 1996. On 7 October 1996, the division was moved to the Dutch-German border but ordered to go no further. When the US, Britain, and Canada crossed the inter-German forntier in December, the Dutch government ordered the 4th MD to stay in place. On 7 January 1997, the division was ordered into Germany to help fight the Warsaw Pact. The division performed well against the V Italian Corps in southern Germany in the summer of 1997. The division was hastily withdrawn to Holland in January of 1998 to counter the French invasion.

The unit was involved in heavy fighting in the Arnheim area against the French 17th Armored Division. It withdrew to central Holland on the orders of the surviving Dutch government.
