After three weeks of constant movement, the 2nd Ukrainian Frontís Debrecen attack bogged down. Large Red Army formations were encircled, and Hungary was committed to remain Germanyís last European ally. Trapped near Nagykallo, the VII Mechanized Corps attempted to find a way out of the closing ring, but found only Paul Klattís Gebirgs-Division 3. This veteran unit arrived in the area only the night before and established defensive positions among the fields surrounding the town. With crack sharpshooters settled on the rooftops and Panzer reinforcements on the way, Klattís mountain men prepared to stop the morning escape attempt.
