I guess we need a question about the neutrals too, so:

Which Swiss city was accidentally bombed by the allies during the war and when did this happen?

"Sir William Deakin, the historian and founding Warden of St Antony's College, Oxford, who died on Saturday aged 91, led the first British military mission to Tito's headquarters." The codename for the mission was "Operation Typical," and it consisted of "a six-man joint SOE-Military Intelligence" team. In leading this mission, Deakin "thereby playing a salient, if enduringly controversial, role in Churchill's decision to abandon the Royalist Cetniks in favour of the Communist Partisans." http://www.telegraph.co.uk, 25 Jan. 2005.

Interesting that Churchill would favor Tito. I wonder what his reasons were?

That's it. Well done!
Churchill favoured Tito ony after he found out that the Cetniks weren't exactly helping the allied cause. That was in late 1943.

Let's hear your question now.

Question: Which neutral country?
continues to operate in favor of the Axis powers and against the United Nations on whom your security and the maintenance of your national economy depend

The United States minister to this country recomended sending in U.S. forces to arrest axis diplomats and close down their missions by force. Extra credit for stating the reason the allies were upset and the name of the U.S. minister quoted above.
Hint: Churchill ordered a land, sea and air blockade of this country.

Knowing how Churchill's mind operated sometimes, it doesn't leave out a whole lot of countries :lol:
