    My high school is doing the play The Mouse that Roared this fall. It's a comedy about a small country in the Alps that is going bankrupt, so they declare war on America so after they lose, aid money is poured into their country. Sounds simple, right? Their army of six bowmen actually wins the war!
    Anyway, I'm one of the soldiers and I'm overseeing the weapons and armor. So anyone have any ideas on how to inexpensively make longbows?

    well, I don't know how to make them , but go to gander moutain maybe (or any other outdoor store) and get those crappy bows, they are not so expensive, I think less than a hundred, I think 25- 50$

    How, exactly ,do six BOWMEN lose a war against thousands of modern soldiers with body armour and assault rifles? Okay, I can believe Helm's Deep, but not if the Uruk-Hai had tanks and helicopters...

    It's a comedy! They accidentally capture a scientist with his new version of the A-bomb, so the US has to surrender.
