The Three Hundred and Thirty Five Years' War (1651-1986) was a war between the Netherlands and the Isles of Scilly (located off the southwest coast of the United Kingdom). It lasted 335 years without a single shot being fired which would make it the longest war and with the fewest casualties. Despite uncertain validity of the declaration of war, peace was declared in 1986.
