Switzerland Invades (Accidentally) | Tales From the Bottle

Switzerland is famously neutral - they don't get involved in conflict, and they would never invade another country, right? Wrong (sort of).
"Switzerland has a relatively active military due to ongoing conscription. Several incidents have occurred during routine training:
On 14 October 1968, five Swiss artillery shells accidentally hit Liechtenstein's only skiing resort, Malbun. The only recorded damages were a few chairs belonging to an outdoor restaurant.
On 26 August 1976, just before midnight, 75 members of the Swiss militia and a number of packhorses mistakenly took a wrong turn and ended up 500 meters into Liechtenstein at Iradug, in Balzers. The Liechtensteiners reportedly offered drinks to the Swiss soldiers.
On 5 December 1985, rockets fired by the Swiss Army landed in Liechtenstein, causing a forest fire in a protected area. Compensation was paid.
On 13 October 1992, following written orders, Swiss Army recruits unknowingly crossed the border and went to Triesenberg to set up an observation post. Swiss commanders had overlooked the fact that Triesenberg was not on Swiss territory. Switzerland apologized to Liechtenstein for the incident.
In March 2007, a company of 171 Swiss soldiers mistakenly entered Liechtenstein, as they were disorientated and took a wrong turn due to bad weather conditions. The troops returned to Swiss territory after they had travelled more than 2 km into the country. The Liechtenstein authorities did not discover the incursion and were informed by the Swiss after the incident. The incident was disregarded by both sides. A Liechtenstein spokesman said, "It's not like they invaded with attack helicopters. No problem, these things happen"."
