Postal history consists of postal rates, mail routes, and all markings found on mail. This book addresses in depth all three aspects of the Swiss World War II mail. Throughout the war, Switzerland was partially, and eventually totally, surrounded by the Axis, yet the mail got out. The book is illustrated with over 230 pieces of actual mail from the period.”
