Twilight 2000 1st edition Edit

From NATO Vehicle Guide (GDW 0526)

The division was activated on 12 September 1996 and was declared operational on 14 September 1996. Up until the Dutch entry into the war, the division was held in Holland. As the fighting in southern Germany grew in intensity, the 5th was sent south into reserve positions around Koln.

In January of 1998, the division was ordered back into Holland. While fighting in the vicinity of Nijmegen, the division was hit hard by French air strikes. The survivors were withdrawn into central Holland and then moved further north, where they have remained ever since.
