While reading "Armageddon" by Max Hastings (a book on the final months of WWII) I found this passage (page 410):
"On 30 September in Haarlem, a German staff car swerved around a corner, forcing a Dutch cyclist to leap on the pavement. The Dutchman shouted angrily at the German driver. The officer in the car responded by tossing a grenade. . ."
