This issue is the sixth in the series of Dutch World Heritage Sites, and honors the Defense Line of Amsterdam.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Defense Line of Amsterdam (Stelling van Amsterdam in Dutch) is an 84 mile long ring of fortifications around Amsterdam, consisting of 42 forts as well as lowlands that can easily be flooded in time of war. The flooding was designed to give a depth of about one foot, which would be insufficient for boats to traverse. Any buildings within 0.6 miles of the line had to be made of wood, so that they could be burnt and the obstruction removed.

Located between 6 and 9 miles from the city center, the Stelling van Amsterdam was constructed between 1880 and 1920. Unfortunately, the invention of the aeroplane and tank made the forts obsolete almost as soon as they were finished.
