Following their peace treaty with Hungary, tensions remained high between the Netherlands and powerhouse Poland (An EDEN member state) which had occupied the Icon-Germany.png German regions of North Rhine-Westphalia and Hesse.

Invasion

By January 19, 2011 the Northern Netherlands had been secured. by the closing days of January the Netherlands had managed to maintain control over the two regions.
