"Swiss-Made Heroes" profiles nine Swiss officers, from the Middle Ages through WWII, who had an enduring impact on world history. Switzerland, better known for its watches, chocolate, and banking industry, has influenced world military history far out of proportion to her diminutive size.Among the nine Swiss heroes profiled are the admiral who laid the groundwork for U.S. victory in the Pacific, the colonel who opened up the American Midwest for settlement, the major who mediated the largest Axis surrender in World War II, and the brave captain who prevented the death of the Pope during the Reformation.
