Please explain.
England vs Finland, WWII
A war between democracies, which is rare in itself.
Anglo-Swedish War (18101812)
No fighting actually took place, Sweden decalred war on England just to satisfy Napoleon.
1969 Soccer War
Between El Salvador and Honduras. A war where you really can say both sides lost. Neither side gained anything and both were much worse off politically, militarily, socially and economically than before they started fighting.
Anglo-Zanzibar War (1896)
Lasted 38 minutes. You couldn't game it in that time.
Pig War (1859)
OK, not a real war. But it did involve a Captain George Pickett.
