Funded by Nazi loot, storm-trooping Swiss attack.
Swiss inadvertently invade Liechtenstein
Company of Swiss troops marches into tiny Liechtenstein by mistake

ZURICH, Switzerland - What began as a routine training exercise almost ended in an embarrassing diplomatic incident after a company of Swiss soldiers got lost at night and marched into neighboring Liechtenstein.
According to Swiss daily Blick, the 170 infantry soldiers from the neutral country wandered 2 kilometers (more than a mile) across an unmarked border into the tiny principality early Thursday before realizing their mistake and turning back.
A spokesman for the Swiss army confirmed the story, but said that there were unlikely to be any serious repercussions for the mistaken invasion.
"We've spoken to the authorities in Liechtenstein, and it's not a problem," Daniel Reist told The Associated Press on Friday.
Officials in Liechtenstein also played down the incident.
Interior Ministry spokesman Markus Amman said nobody in Liechtenstein had even noticed the soldiers, who were carrying assault rifles but no ammunition. "It's not like they stormed over here with attack helicopters or something," he said.

Liechtenstein, which has about 34,000 inhabitants and is slightly smaller than Washington, D.C., does not have an army.

Not just Nazi, but also plenty of Jewish money, that was never claimed.
People forget, that if you go back in history, the main Swiss export were mercenaries.
BTW, there is a small Southern German town with a long standing treaty with Liechtenstein. The Swiss Franc is legal tender there, and Liechtenstein Banks under Swiss / Liechtenstein bank secrecy laws, operate branches where people can directly deposit into numbered accounts.
No need to cross the border.
