GERMAN VIOLATION OF SWISS SOVEREIGNTY!
On 10 May 1940, when Nazi-Germany commenced the drive into France, that the Swiss army as a whole was mobilized a second time.
At the onset of the campaign against France, Nazi-German military aircraft first violated Swiss airspace.
The first serious combat involving the Swiss Air Force began in June 1940.
FINAL SCORE: SWISS 11 - GERMANS 2!
GERMANY INDIGNANT AT SWISS SELF-DEFENSE!
The chief of the Nazi Luftwaffe, Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering seethed with rage!
On 6 June 1940, facing the 11 own losses, he was hypocritically indignant against the successful Swiss fighter pilots!
He claimed brazenly: «Most of the German planes were in French airspace and the Luftwaffe had entered Swiss airspace only by mistake.»
Consequently, Nazi-Germany demanded financial compensation and an apology by the Swiss government.
