During World War I, from 1914-1918, Switzerland maintained its neutrality, but sent many soldiers to occupy their northwestern frontiers near the border between France and Germany, to prevent the hostilities from spreading into their territory. The French-speaking and German-speaking populations of Switzerland naturally had divided allegiances, and many cards were produced promoting unity and peace.
I will be listing several other lots of Swiss cards from the same period over the next week or so.
