Prince Maurits was only 17 when the fate of the Dutch military became his responsibility. The Eighty Years War, in which the Netherlands battled with its Spanish oppressor, was in full swing. In Maurits and the Secret of Orange, children are taken on a spectacular journey through the theatre of war that raged four centuries ago by their guide, Prince Maurits. There is everything from a visit to a rowdy tavern and a tour of a well ordered arsenal, to taking part in a dangerous battle and an exclusive meeting with the Prince himself. Win the war against the Spanish with Maurits!
