Mouse That Roared
Nestled in the Alps is a tiny country by the name of Grand Fenwick, and it is about to go bankrupt if something drastic is not done! So the Duchess Gloriana and her counsel decide that declaring war with the United States is the best solution to their problems—then they can plan to lose and be rehabilitated! Gloriana dispatches her small troop of men, who are led by the most seriously brave, but most sincerely gullible Tully Bascomb.
There's some method to her madness, however, for her study of recent history suggests that the surest way to wealth today is to lose a war with the United States, for that country's odd reaction is to pour aid, relief and rehabilitation on the vanquished. When her "declaration" is considered a prank, Gloriana decides to escalate! Tully Bascomb, presently in charge of the bowmen, is to launch an attack so they can surrender and reap the rewards.
