The Thirty Hungarian Nights is the name given to the thirty nights spent by Sebastien's European Alliance forces holed up across thirty-four miles of Hungarian territory near the Turkish frontier, pinned down thanks to the disastrous Battle of Kalau, in late 1940. As many as half a million Allied soldiers died during the month of October, and the period became known as the "Devil's Autumn" in the Eastern Department due to a collapse of protection for civilians and vicious assaults from Scandinavia and Denmark against civilian targets, resulting in as many as three and a half million civilian deaths between early September and late December in the region. In all, including Imperial and Danish forces, as many as four and a half million died in the final four months of 1940 from starvation, poison attacks, fighting, disease and the cold.
