      10. Taube

      Not only is it so cool that it actually has the outline of a dove, but it was the first mass produced plane of Germany as well as the platform for dropping the first bomb from the air (Italians in Libya). It may have also dropped the first propaganda leaflets. The funny thing is that the pilot dropped the leaflets on Paris alright, except he didn’t take them out of the carry pouch.

                      • 4. Norway (definitely neutral).

                        Portugal was neutral until 9 March 1916 when Germany declared war on them. They reciprocated by declaring war on Germany (all to do with interned ships)

                            7. San Marino

                            Interesting tidbit from Wiki:
                            During World War I, when Italy declared war on Austria-Hungary on 23 May 1915, San Marino remained neutral and Italy adopted a hostile view of Sammarinese neutrality, suspecting that San Marino could harbor Austrian spies who could be given access to its new radiotelegraph station. Italy tried to forcibly establish a detachment of Carabinieri in the Republic and then cut the Republic's telephone lines when it did not comply. Two groups of ten volunteers did, however, join Italian forces in the fighting on the Italian front, the first as combatants and the second as a Medical Corps operating a Red Cross field hospital. The existence of this hospital later caused Austria-Hungary to suspend diplomatic relations with San Marino.
