More > tussen de Hollanders en de (Braziliaanse) Portugezen (1644 – 1654) wel getypeerd. Van 1630 - 1654 had de West-Indische Compagnie een groot deel van het Noordoosten van Brazilië in bezit. In 1644 kwamen de Portugese kolonisten tegen de Hollanders in opstand. In 1645 werd in de Nederlanden een grote 'secoursvloot' opgetuigd om de opstand te keren.

Het vertelt ook van de grote aspiraties van de Hollanders in de 17e eeuw, maar die uiteindelijk schipbreuk leden.< Less
