Great Britain and Zanzibar. A full thirty-eight minutes (which would make the Hundred Years' War over 1,500,000 times longer). Also, incidentally, an example of Britain popping over to conquer another country with only the flimsiest of excuses for getting away with it. Ah, imperialism. At least the French won, though they'd eventually go on to do it plenty themselves...

(Though I'm not sure I'd call the Hundred Years' War a single war, and in any case it'd be beat by the Arauco War, which lasted nearly 300 years (nearly FOUR MILLION times as long as the Anglo-Zanzibar war!). It's as much a single war as the one you mentioned, at least.)
