February 1st — February 4th
Kingisepp–Gdov offensive

During the entirety of February, 1944, the Leningrad Front of the Soviet Army had been leading a massive offensive on the positions of German forces. As a result the towns of Kingisepp and Gdov were liberated, but Army Group North was far from being routed.

February 4th — February 7th
Operation Sonnenblume

After a series of crushing defeats of the Italian Army on the North African Front Mussolini had to accept Hitler's help. In early February of 1941 the Wehrmacht sent two tank divisions into Libya, led by Erwin Rommel — and already in early April they led a successful counteroffensive, pushing the British forces from Cyrenaica.

February 8th — February 11th
Lam Son 719

During the Vietnam War the Viet Cong used the Ho Chi Minh Trail through Laos to transport troops into South Vietnam and supply them. On February 8th, 1971 the South Vietnamese army began an operation to destroy the Trail. American ground forces weren't allowed to enter Laos, so the US provided artillery and air support. Due to successes of Viet Cong's intelligence and failures of South Vietnamese Army leadership, the operation was a failure, and their forces started withdrawing from Laos a month later.

February 11th — February 14th
Operation Cerberus

In February of 1942 the German fleet undertook an operation to relocate three of its big vessels from West France to North Germany. The shortest route was through the Dover Strait, so the Germans took numerous measures to ensure the safety of their passage. The Royal Air Force undertook almost 700 sorties but failed to sink even a single German ship.

February 15th — February 18th
Battle of Demyansk

In late February of 1943 the Red Army tried to encircle and destroy the German forces in the Demyansk Pocket, a well fortified salient in the Novgorod region. The operation was a failure: the Wehrmacht had successfully evacuated its forces from Demyansk with losses five times less than that of the Soviet Army.

February 19th — February 22nd
Battle of Kasserine Pass

On February 19-22, 1943 the Allies and Axis powers fought in the Atlas mountains in West Tunisia. It was the first battle of American troops on the North African Front, and field marshal Rommel used the enemy's lack of experience to perform a successful attack. The Allies took serious casualties, and that led to a reshuffle in their command: general George Patton became the commander of the US forces, and he eventually ended the Tunisia campaign with Allied victory.

February 22nd — February 25th
Operation Grenade

In late February of 1945 the Allies were ready to invade Germany from the west. For the US 9th Army it meant crossing the Roer river from the Netherlands, but the Germans opened the sluices, flooding the river, and guarded the other bank. It was on February 23rd when the 9th Army finally managed to cross the river, marking the beginning of several successful operations.

February 25th— February 28th
Battle of Norfolk

On February 27th, 1991 the biggest tank battle of the Gulf War was fought, with at least 12 divisions participating. American and British forces have crushed the Iraqi Army, having destroyed over 850 tanks. The war was over the very next day.
