An okay book, I'm sure, but perhaps the only reason Switzerland was able to keep their country was because they helped the Nazis. A recommended book for research: Hitler's Secret Bankers by Adam Lebor So get that also if you're researching Switzerland.

I enjoyed this book very much, especially prior to my trip to Switzerland. I didn't know much about Switzerland or how it handled the situation in World War II, especially from their perspective. I felt the book provided a good balance of military, national and political history which laid the foundation for the end result - a small, neutral territory that survived a war that only 'superpowers' were able to stop. For perspective, understanding and insight into the Swiss during the war it is a very good book.
