Paul von Nágy
At the beginning of the war, Oberst Paul von Nágy was in command of the 72. Honved infantry brigade, part of the 37. Honved infantry division of  General Wieber in the V. Corps of General Paul von Puhallo. GM Nagy took control of the 38. Honvéd Infantry Division in November 1914, replacing FML Johann Freiherr Karg von Bebenburg.  Nagy kept this command for less than a month before he was succeeded by FML Sandor Szurmay. Nagy then assumed command of the 20. Honvéd Infantry Division in January 1915, thus replacing FML Johann Nikic, who had departed in December.  Nagy retained this command until July, when he turned it over to GM Géza Lukachich von Somorja, who took control in August.  GM Nagy was granted control of the 40. Honvéd Infantry Division in September 1915, and he led this force all the way to wars' end in November 1918, being promoted to FML along the way.
