a series of conflicts between Iceland and England because Iceland insisted on increasing its fishing area. Some people say it got close to real war, but it was mostly a kind of, "drop those fish, or we'll fire a shot off your bow" sort of conflict. Iceland wins, the Brits are no match for them :)
Say, why did the Brits lose to the Icelanders? Oh that's right, they overfished, and Iceland's economy is like 81% dependent on cod.
