(1874 – 1960) was the fourth and most recent man to be appointed to the rarely used Swiss rank of General, and was possibly Switzerland’s most famous soldier. He is best remembered for effectively mobilizing the Swiss army and Swiss people in order to prepare resistance against a possible invasion by Nazi Germany in 1940.
