Fantastic War

The Spanish–Portuguese War between 1762 and 1763 was fought as part of the Seven Years' War. Because no major battles were fought, even though there were numerous movements of troops and huge losses among the invaders -utterly defeated in the end-, the war is known in the Portuguese history as the Fantastic War (Guerra Fantástica).
