Battle of Nagykanizsa
The Battle of Nagykanizsa was a Great War engagement between Granzerian and Vierz forces on the East Vierz Front near Nagykanizsa in Granzery between July and August 1947. The battle began with the launch of the Granzerian offensive Operation Hussar, on 5 July, with the aim of pinching the Vierz salient around Nagykanizsa with simultaneous armoured thrusts into the north and south of the salient. The Granzerian offensive achieved some initial success on the north salient while the southern offensive stalled. The Vierz forces launched powerful counterattacks on the north and south of the salient, involving armoured and mechanized forces which would cut off the Granzerian advance in the northern salient.
A week after the battle Tieradan and Vonzumieran forces on the Western Front began the Battle of Sejpedek and thus the invasion of Western Granzery, prompting Operation Hussar to be cancelled and troops to be withdrawn from the Vierz front to reinforce the collapsing front with Tierada. However due to heavy Vierz losses, the battle succeeded in delaying the planned Vierz offensive into Granzery. Six months later the Vierz Army would begin the Siege of Husegesvar and ultimately force a Granzerian capitulation in February of 1947. The Battle of Nagykanizsa remains the largest battle fought on Granzerian soil and was one of the largest armoured battles of the Great War.
