September 1st — September 4th
Operation Grand Slam

The pivotal operation of the Second Indo-Pakistani war of 1965. Pakistani forces had cut off Indian supply lines under Jammu and had an overwhelming advantage in numbers at the beginning of the attack, but on the second day of the operation its command had suddenly changed. The Indian army used that pause to strengthen its contingent in the region, so in the end the battle ended in a stalemate.

September 5th — September 8th
Berlin Victory Parade of 1945

Even though the fighting in Berlin had died down in May of 1945, the big victory parade with all the Allies took place some time later: the Allies decided to hold it after World War II was over. So after Japan had surrendered on September 2nd, the soldiers of the USSR, USA, Great Britain and France held a victory parade on September 7th in Berlin.

September 8th — September 11th
Operation Achse

In the summer of 1943 after the Allies had landed on Sicily, a coup d’etat happened in Italy: Benito Mussolini’s government was removed from power, and the new leadership surrendered to the Allies. Hitler couldn’t tolerate his main ally resigning from the war, so he sent German forces to establish control over Northern and Central Italy, including Rome. The Wehrmacht had successfully completed its tasks, and from September of 1943, a marionette Salo Republic led by Mussolini was established in the occupied territories.

September 12th — September 15th
Riga offensive (1944)

After the success of the Siauliai Offensive and the victory over the German forces in Estonia, the Red Army had to execute a final operation to split the North and Center Army Groups of the Wehrmacht. As a result of the Riga Offensive, the Soviet forces advanced to the Baltic Sea, while the Wehrmacht’s North army group was cut off and surrounded in the Courland Pocket, where it remained until the end of the war.

September 16th — September 19th
Battle of Chawinda

In mid-September 1965 the biggest tank battle since the Battle of Kursk took place. Having stopped Pakistan’s attack, India started its counteroffensive, utilizing its overwhelming force in the Chawinda region. The Pakistani forces used air support to last long enough for reinforcements to arrive, and the battle once again ended in a stalemate — with huge tank losses on both sides.

September 19th — September 22nd
Battle of Hürtgen Forest

The battle of Hürtgen Forest began on September 19th 1944, and lasted for three months, thus becoming the longest battle in the history of the US Army. The Wehrmacht fought on its home territory, using dense forests and fortifications, mining paths and setting up traps. Despite the Americans having more manpower, their advance was slow with heavy losses. The successful defense of Hürtgen Forest became a prelude to the large Ardennes Counteroffensive by the German forces.

September 23rd — September 26th
Tuapse defensive operation

September 25th, 1942 saw the start of the Tuapse Defensive Operation, part of the strategic Battle of the Caucasus. The Red Army successfully stopped the German forces under Tuapse, not letting them capture the town and reach the Black Sea. By the end of November the Wehrmacht’s advance in the region had completely stopped, and the Soviet army went into counteroffensive, beginning the liberation of Kuban from the Tuapse area.

September 27th — September 30th
Operation Halberd

In late September of 1941 the British Royal Navy delivered a supply convoy to Malta. The Italians tried to intercept it but were deterred by the strength of the escorting force: 3 battleships, 18 destroyers, 8 submarines and an aircraft carrier. Using its overwhelming force, the British fleet easily repelled the attack from the air and delivered the cargo to its destination.
