After this, there was a dispute about it in both the princely states.

At the same time, the people of the princely state of Nagaur said that if the fruit has come within our limits, then we will have the right over it. This little quarrel turned into a big war.

Austria and Romania were friendly countries at that time. Romanian soldiers invited Austrian soldiers to drink alcohol. He accepted the invitation and joined the Romanian troops to drink alcohol. Shortly thereafter, some more Austrian soldiers arrived while patrolling. They also sought bottles of liquor to drink, but now only one bottle of liquor was left. For this reason, the Romanian soldiers refused to give him liquor. On this, things got worse and the soldiers started fighting amongst themselves, on seeing, the soldiers started firing at each other.

On the other side of the Danube river, Austrian troops were vigilantly monitoring that the Ottoman army would attack them. As soon as they heard the sound of these bullets, they felt that the Ottoman army had attacked. After this, he started firing bullets in the same direction from the gun. On the other side, many soldiers in the darkness were shouting at them that they should not shoot. It is our soldiers who are fighting among themselves. But they could not understand their language. More than 10,000 soldiers died in this strange war. In history, it is referred to as the foolish battle (the dumbest battle of history).
