Saturday Secret for June 18, 2011

While most of the wars internationally take many, many years before one of the nationalities surrender, there are different cases. 7 years, 10 years, even longer!

Did you know….?



That opposed to the years it took to finish some wars, this certain war between two countries took only 38 minutes!

England vs Zanzibar

England vs Zanzibar

Yes, so everyone else who took years were just overreacting – kidding! Just a joke guys.

The war between England and Zanzibar in 1896 barely started when it was already over!

Zanzibar surrendered after approximately 37 minutes 23 seconds.

Quick huh? I wonder if there are actual artifacts or any memorabilias from this war.

If you’re in England or Zanzibar anytime soon, maybe you should ask around about the war and what happened.
