The Battle of South Guangxi (zh-tsp|t=桂南會戰|s=桂南会战|p=Guìnán Huìzhàn), was one of the 22 major engagements between the
National Revolutionary Armyand Imperial Japanese Armyduring the Second Sino-Japanese War.
In November of 1939, the Japanese landed on the coast of
Guangxiand captured Nanning. In this battle, the Japanese successfully cut off Chongqingfrom the ocean, effectively severing foreign aid to China's war efforts by the sea, rendering Indochina, Burma Roadand The Humpas the only way to send aid to China.
The Chinese were able to launch several major offensives that maximized Japanese casualties. Majority of the conflicts occurred in the contention for Kunlun Pass. With the success of the of the
Vietnam Expeditionin September 1940, the Japanese were able to cut off China except over the Burma Roadand The Humpwithout the costly necessity of occupying Guangxi. By November 1940, Japanese forces had evacuated from Guangxi.
