In January of 1998, Franco-Belgian forces moved forward to the Rhine River. The stated objective was to secure their frontiers against the hoardes of refugees and marauders. The Germans offered some resistance, but were tied down in preparations for an offensive into Czechoslovakia. The US military government, now recognized as the "official" US government by the French, stayed neutral. The Dutch Army did not survive this invasion, and much of Holland is in the so-called "dead zone" (a free-fire zone east of the Rhine, patrolled by French soldiers). But a resistence movement continues fighting a bitter war of raids and reprisals in an effort to force the invaders out of occupied Holland.
