The Battle of South Guangxi ( ), was one of the 22 major engagements between the National Revolutionary Army and Imperial Japanese Army during the Second Sino-Japanese War.

In November 1939, the Japanese landed on the coast of Guangxi and captured Nanningmarker. In this battle, the Japanese successfully cut off Chongqingmarker from the ocean, effectively severing foreign aid to China's war efforts by the sea, rendering Indochina, Burma Road and The Hump as 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 Expedition in September 1940, the Japanese were able to cut off China except over the Burma Road and The Hump without the costly necessity of occupying Guangxi. By November 1940, Japanese forces had evacuated from Guangxi.
