Neither Friend Nor Foe is the best survey of European neutrality in WWII that I've found. It is sufficiently scholarly to serve as a good launch point for an academic seeking an introduction to the area, while also being accessible and engaging for the common reader. Though I was in grad school and should not have taken the time to do so, I read this cover to cover--and also used it as a reference later.

This book was an overall view of all the countries that claimed neutrality during WWII and what they did to appeaze both the Axis and Allied sides to overt hostilities and not show favoritism. Switzerland, Ireland,Spain,Sweeden, and Portugal all walked a fine line to continue to exist and do business with both Germany and England the main proponents of the war. The book is very well laid out and you get a good sense of what happened during these years. Not a big topic for anyone other than those...more
