NotesRepublished in David Low, Europe at War, (Penguin Books, 1941) dated 13 January 1940. Printed on opposite page: "After Finland, the position of the small neutrals had become increasingly perilous. They feared to collaborate for mutual safety because of compromising each its strict neutrality. Belgium, particularly, had rigidly avoided giving any excuse for trouble-making. Nevertheless, disquieting report of German activity came from the Dutch and Belgian frontiers. Hitler thought their neutrality was not sufficiently pro-Nazi. As good neutrals they should fight the British blockade. He suspected a plot by Chamberlain." p. 30.
