"Switzerland, landlocked and encircled by the Axis, averted invasion and occupation in World War II largely through its own efforts. They prepared for war through a strong military build-up backed by strict adherence to its centuries-old policy of armed neutrality, and were able to preserve its own democracy and provide a safe haven for hundred of thousands of victims of the conflict"-- Provided by publisher
