The Fourposter Summary (220 words)
Jan de Hartog was born on April 22, 1914, in Haarlem, the Netherlands.
De Hartog left home at the age of ten to work as a sailor on fishing boats, steamers and tugboats, becoming an adjunct inspector with the Amsterdam Harbor Police.
His 1940 novel Hollands Glorie was based on de Hartog’s own experiences as a sailor, but it became a symbol of Dutch resistance against the Nazi occupation of World War II and was banned.
