Response to Re: Dutch perception of Admiral Helfrich


Hi Nelson...

I do want to try and keep this string narrowly focused on Admiral Helfrich. However, I did want to address your point about the comparison to MacArthur. I did so only in the context to make a point that although Big Mac did hold a number of very high level positions and was certainly an esteemed officer, he was not universally loved. As a result, there are any number of sources that are pro/con for the man.

With this in mind, I'm only trying to clarify that Helfrich could have been in a similar position. Just because the man held a number of senior-level positions in the Dutch navy and government doesn't mean he was necessarily loved and/or doesn't have his detractors.
