Hungarian-Romanian War 1919

[ 1919 ]

Earlier, to stop a possible Hungarian reconquest of Transylvania (under Rumanian control), a Rumanian army had invaded Hungary in April 1919 and had repelled Kun's attack on it. Kun's army refused to fight as Rumanian troops advanced on Budapest; Kun fled to Vienna on August 1, 1919; four days later the Rumanians occupied Budapest, which they pillaged before withdrawing on November 14, 1919...

Kun then unsuccessfully turned the Hungarian Red Army on the Romanians, who broke through Hungarian lines on July 30, occupied and looted Budapest, and ousted Kun's Soviet Republic on August 1, 1919. Kun fled first to Vienna and then to Soviet Russia, where he was executed during Stalin's purge of foreign communists in the late 1930s.
