What wars did Sweden have?
Sweden has had 26 wars ranging from 1521 (the Danish liberation war two years before Gustav Vasa climbed the throne) to 1814 (the campaign against Norway when Sweden forced Norway into a union. Before this Sweden was in several wars as well, and in between Sweden have been at war with Poland, Russia, France and several parts of what we now call Germany. See the Related Link for "List of Swedish wars" to the bottom for the answer.
When the war started, Sweden declared themselves neutral. Since the Napoleonic Wars, Sweden had generally done so, and never really got involved in the wars crisscrossing Europe. Germany did not invade Sweden because they didn't really need to. Sweden, as a neutral country, continued selling stuff to Germany- especially iron ore, which was very important for building weapons like tanks, airplanes, and warships. Without this iron ore, Germany probably could not have continued the war…
