This serial of three articles shows that political propaganda often was present on Dutch postage stamps, meter marks etc. No matter whether you like it or not. Also Cinderella stamps on mail are incorporated in this article, although not postal but private. It shows an aspect of Social Philately and how mail was deployed for political propaganda. We start with the Napoleonic era in the Netherlands (1810-1813) till 1940. Part II deals with the period during World War II, and part III the period after the Second World War.
