- 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.
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.
That's... about from Southernmost Germany to Zürich by car :P
