The ANZAC Day Offensive (deemed Operation Königreich Jerusalem by Großgermania) was a large offensive conducted by Arrnea Loyalist forces against the People's Armed Forces of the Republic of Jerna, during the Jernan Civil War. Beginning on the 25th of April, 2015 (ANZAC Day), and ending on the 3rd of May, it was successful in routing forces of the PAF loyal to the military Junta ruling the nation from Jerna City from much of the country, with only Geraldton and Jerna City itself remaining under PAF control at the conclusion of the offensive.

The ease by which Loyalist forces took over much of the country was largely due to an extremely high rate of desertion amongst the PAF forces after the resounding defeat of PAF forces at the Second Battle of Southport and the Battle of Mount Barker, allowing Loyalist forces to capture many towns and cities with little or no resistance. Due to this, the number of soldiers killed was relatively low on both sides, with more soldiers being killed during the Battle of Mount Barker than were killed during the entire ANZAC Day Offensive.
