Oh yes, I know this one from primary school history, when I did a project on Zanzibar conflicts throughout history. No need to google it; :-"
The Anglo-Zanzibar War was a military conflict fought between the United Kingdom and the Zanzibar Sultanate on 27 August 1896. The conflict lasted between 38 and 45 minutes, marking it as the shortest recorded war in history

Queen Victoria was nearly dumped into the road when the horses pulling her gun carriage were frightened. After that, sailors were used. Sailors don't get frightened.
