Huaihai Campaign (November 6, 1948 – January 10, 1949) was a military action during 1948 and 1949 that was the determining battle of the Chinese Civil War. It was one of the few conventional battles of the war.

About 550,000 troops of the Kuomintang were surrounded in Xuzhou and destroyed by the communist People's Liberation Army (PLA).

This campaign is one of the three campaigns that marked the end of Kuomintang dominance in northern China, the other two campaigns being Liaoshen Campaign and Pingjin Campaign.
