The Battle of West Henan–North Hubei (simplified Chinese: 豫西鄂北会战; traditional Chinese: 豫西鄂北會戰; pinyin: Yù Xī È Běi Huìzhàn), was one of the 22 major engagements between the National Revolutionary Army and Imperial Japanese Army during the Second Sino-Japanese War. It was in northern Hubei and western Henan. While it was a tactical stalemate, the battle was also an operational victory for the Japanese forces, who seized control of local airbases, denying Chinese forces of any localized air support.
