Empire Total War: The Second 80 Years War quick online Q&A
Q: What portion of troops from America were free to be sent to Europe?
A: The Dutch were willing to leave behind approximately one army in the American theater of approximately three thousand men. This would account for approximately half their forces from North America. They wouldn't be free to disembark for another four years at best at that time, and wouldn't arrive until after the forces from India could arrive.
