about

This book fills a gap in the existing literature on the Second World War by covering the range of challenges, threats, issues, dilemmas, and changes faced and dealt with by Sweden during the conflict.Interest in Sweden's wartime experiences has increased due to its post-war profile as aneutral that both allowed German troops to transit through its territory and also carried on trading with the Nazi regime during the holocaust years. Many misconceptions and false impressions have arisen and persisted as a result of deliberate misinformation and concealment by all sides during that time. Readers of this book will gain a fresh, broad view of the period, personalities and problems from a Swedish orientation.
John Gilmour is Honorary Fellow in Scandinavian Studies at the University of Edinburgh.

Editorial Reviews

Unlike Boëthius, Gilmour has built an argument from the sources rather than an emotional approach towards Swedish conduct.
