La Place de la Concorde Suisse - AbeBooks - McPhee, John:
Customer Reviews. Write a review. A faithful rendition of the Swiss military tradition Published by Thriftbooks. In German, La Place de la Concorde Suisse is rendered Concordiaplatz, and it is visible from the Jungfraujoch, which means "virgin saddle," and which is reached via funicular railway from Interlaken. Depending upon the season, one can either hike or ski from the Jungfraujoch down the Aletsch glacier to Concordiaplatz and view the redoubt containing the sunken armory described in McPhee's book. As one who lived and worked in Switzerland for eight years, and whose published memoir, Living Among The Swiss, is listed on this website, I can attest to the accuracy of McPhee's account.
Most of my business colleagues were required to take annual two- or three-week military leaves, and one sees soldiers everywhere: on trains, in ski resorts, along low and vulnerable mountain passes such as those north of Sargans, and, increasingly, at airports. Gives Swiss military history; they were very successful fighters.
Neutrality began in and after that they leased their soldiers to other countries. Tells how high rank in business goes with high army rank and how military service is subsidized by industry.
Tells about officers and the general staff, most of whom are upper-class. Gives facts on compulsory service.
