Hungarian Invasion of Czechoslovakia 1919

(Hungarian War)

[ 1919 - 1920 ]

Appealing to Hungarian nationalism and promising to gain Russian aid (which never arrived), Kun and his followers formed a Red Army that shortly reconquered Slovakia from the Czechs...The Allies forced Kun to relinquish Slovakia 

*****

In late [March 1919], Kun attempted to fulfill his promise to restore Hungary's borders. The Hungarian Red Army marched northward and reoccupied part of Slovakia. Despite initial military success, however, Kun withdrew his troops about three weeks later when the French threatened to intervene. This concession shook his popular support.
