If Sweden was neutral could warring nations have espionage rings operating in Stockholm at the time?
This information is taken from Wikipedia:"The Allies were also collaborating with C-byrån, the Swedish military intelligence. Sweden allowed Allied spies to listen to German radio signals from a station on Öland, and in Malmö a location was established for British military to lead bombing actions in Germany"

They didn't want to get involved and Germany couldn't overtake them. %REPLIES% Answer Sweden wasn't in any position to take sides at the time. They had a small, antinquated… army and fleet. They depended on foreign trade to survive. As long as they supplied Germany with iron ore they could make money...during the first 3 quarters of the war Germany largely dictated the price for the iron and forced Sweden to let them ship German troops through their land. Once Germany's fortunes started to fall the Allies were able to press Sweden to reduce shipments and be less generous to the Germans. Answer The answer of Mr Fazzi really illustrates the realities of the time exhaustively. A final note of interest here is that Denmark, Finland, Norway, the Netherlands and Belgium were all also Neutral - but invaded. Thus, Sweden remained neutral only because she was never invaded. While all parties involved (UK, Third Reich and the Soviet Union) all at one time or another made plans for invasion of Sweden, none reached a point where it was considered very beneficial, nor very necessary. SincerelyTommy Answer There wasn't any reason to invade Sweden. None of the Allies were in any position to seriously challenge Germany's "control" of Sweden until the spring of 1945. By then the outcome of the war was clear. Also there was nothing to gain by Germany if they had chosen to invade. An invasion of Sweden by Germany would have caused significant political and security issues for Germany. Remember there was, and still is a significant Swedish population living in Finland, it's doubtful a hostile occupation of Sweden would have sat well with this population, drawing needed troops from the Russian Front and jeopardizing supply lines. Further, it isn't a given that even with a "small and antiquated" military, that Sweden would not have given Germany, or any allied country foolish enough to invade, a real pounding, much like the Finns gave the Russians in the Winter War.
Answer . They did not go into war, because they did not have a lot of people to fight with.. Also, there was no reason for a small country, like Sweden, to be in a war bet…ween great countries.. Answer . World War 1 had nothing to do with Sweden.
Because Sweden was north of all the European combat zones, they weren't in anyone's way, and were not attacked. It's easy to remain neutral as long as no one is attacking you.… We can safely assume that if the Third Reich had won, they would in due course have gotten around to absorbing Sweden into their empire. Neutrality would not have protected Sweden from a victorious Reich, bent upon world domination.
Neither Sweden nor Switzerland would be able to hold of Germany, and a swedish/Swiss entry to WWII wouldn't have changed anything. Sweden had a policy of neutrality since mo…re than a hundred years back, and militarily speaking Sweden was quite weak at the time.
Answer . \nThere were no reason for Sweden to get involved in WWI
Swedish neutrality refers to Sweden 's policy of neutrality in armed conflicts, which has been in effect since the early 19th century. The policy originated largely as a re…sult of Sweden's involvement in the Napoleonic Wars during which over a third of the country's territory was lost
Yes it's the capital city of Sweden and it's really beautiful as well as really pricey. it's like in the middle of Sweden
I haven't researched... But I believe that Sweden feels that it doesn't have to be anything but neutral. It had no reason to pick a side. If it was forced, it would probably p…ick the Allies. For sure. However, Sweden has earned on being neutral and it is good that someone avoids war.

1814. During the Finnish Winter war 1939-1940 however Sweden did not declare itself neutral but non belligerent which means Sweden did not actually take part in any fightin…g but could provide Finland with other kinds of assistance such as weapons.
Sweden is located in northern Europe, east of Norway. Stockholm is located in the southeast portion of Sweden, on the Gulf of Bothnia. Finland is directly across the gulf. 1
I see what you have done & I think it is a fair way of asking... All three of the above were neutral in WW2. Spain certainly was pro Axis...
In the previous century the Swedes chose to be "eternally" neutral. Their nation had been in too many wars. They chose to be neutral and stay neutral. During the war Nazis cam…e into their country and the Monarchy had to get them booted out. They did help escaping Jews by allowing them into Sweden. They also helped Norwegians and Finns escapees.
