It's hardly re-enacting if it's in Switzerland, is it? They didn't play the first time round. They were just the banker.

Can you provide any links to books? I'm genuinely interested.

The only one I've got is David Kranzler's book on George Mantello.

Swiss WWII reenactment:
Dig a bunch of holes in Central Switzerland and prepare to hide in them for a few days before the nazis root you out.
