Amritsar-born Bhupinder Singh of Holland has come up with his third book, "The Dutch Singh: A brief history," on the accomplishments of Sikhs who have adopted Holland as their country.

Known for his great work on the world wars depicting Sikhs' contribution to the world during the wars, the book revealed the history of Sikhs living in Holland.

The book contained a large number of coloured and black and white photographs about the Sikhs activities in the country, besides preserving several precious documents, including letters of the government officials about the Sikhs position, rights, role and their identity.

The present work disclosed that the Sikhs were known to the Netherlands since the times of Sikh general Banda Singh Bahadur.
