Friendship under Stress

U.S.-Swiss Relations 1900-1950

The mighty North-American republic at times exerted considerable pressure to force the small European neutral into submission to its immediate, short-range policy goals.

Switzerland, on the whole, successfully withstood this pressure and has seen its viewpoint vindicated more often than not by the course of events.
