The Battle of the Afsluitdijk was an unsuccessful attempt by the German Army to seize the Afsluitdijk in May 1940, during World War II. If the Germans had taken the dyke, they could have taken North Holland from its north. The Dutch troops were led by Captain Christiaan Boers and the Germans by General Kurt Feldt.
