I hope I am not late

Historical context
Anglo-Zanzibar War

The Anglo-Zanzibar War. The shortest war ever recorded. Lasted 38 minutes from when war were declared till peace was settled.

It is not that it I suppose it took Zanzibar completely by surprise, but I suppose it ended quicker than they had suspected. Hell, even the Danes fought for a longer period during the Second World War.

Just sayin'.


The danes fought 2 hours, right?

Yep. So our war was longer. Though, considering that the fighting between Denmark and Germany was part of the Second World War, historians generally do not consider it to count.

The Anglo-Zanzibar War was done in 38 minutes.
