In July 1941, the [[Kingdom of Hungary (1920–1946)|Kingdom of Hungary]], a member of [[Tripartite Pact]], took part in [[Operation Barbarossa]], in alliance with [[Nazi Germany]]. Hungarian forces fought shoulder to shoulder with the [[Wehrmacht]], and advanced through Soviet Ukraine, deep into [[Russia]], all the way to [[Battle of Stalingrad|Stalingrad]]. By 1943–1944, the tide of the war had turned. The [[Red Army]] regained the pre-war [[Soviet Union|Soviet]] territory, and advanced westward from its borders to defeat Germany and its allies.

It was in the context of these events that the [[Budapest Offensive]] took place in September 1944. As the Hungarian army ignored the armistice with the USSR (signed by the government of [[Miklós Horthy]] on October 15, 1944), the Soviets fought against the Hungarian troops and their German allies, [[Siege of Budapest|capturing the capital]] on February 13, 1945, and continuing military operations until April 4, 1945 when the last German forces and the part of Hungarian troops that chose to stay loyal to Germans, despite another armistice (signed by the government of [[Ferenc Szálasi]]), were routed.
