    Arrow Was Switzerland really impossible to invade during WW2?

    I'm merely asking if the defense of Switzerland during WW2 was overrated. Many people claim that the country was impossible to occupy; I just want to know if this is not clearly exaggerated.

    Yeah I honestly thought this guy was a bot because of how formulaic each one of his posts felt...

    And Switzerland wasn't impossible to occupy during WW2, it just remained aggressively neutral. Therefore, it wasn't to either side's benefit to invade. Not to say they didn't try, both Axis and Allied powers attacked Switzerland throughout the war. I'm guessing both sides decided it just wasn't worth the time and resources to try to invade the highly militant and fortified Switzerland while the war to end all wars was ongoing.

    It looks like you’re writing unsubstantiated nonsense. Would you like to turn on all caps?

    Thanks for already saying it... I'm dumbfounded on this shit now. He doesn't even address it when called out, just adds a source on the next random C&P lmao.

    No country is impossible to invade. Andorra could invade the USA.

    The question you should have asked was "Was Switzerland Impossible to Conquer during World War II?".

    The answer is no country is impossible to conquer. But there is great variation in the probability that a specific country will actually conquer another specific country if it tries to do so during a specific moment in time.

    So the question you really should have asked was "How Hard Would it Have Been for the Axis to Invade and conquer Switzerland During World War II?"

    Even though the Axis countries invaded a lot of countries during World War II, there were a number of other countries they didn't invade. Obviously the Axis leaders didn't consider the desirability of invading those countries worth the trouble at the moment.

    Considering that the Axis invaded the mighty USSR and declared war on the mighty USA, I expect that if the Axis won World War II, had millions of soldiers available, and was sufficiently motivated to invade Switzerland, they would have conquered Switzerland despite the problems and difficulties.
