The Battle of Kursk
Download Wallpaper:

From July through to August of 1943, German and Soviet forces would clash at the infamous Battle of Kursk, one of the largest tank battles in history where legends such as the Tiger, Panther and T-34 clashed in ferocious combat. Beginning with the German ‘Operation Citadel’, which aimed to ensnare Soviet forces from the North and South with a pincer movement, Wehrmacht forces faced fierce resistance from the Red Army. 

The battle resulted in the first time German forces were successfully halted in their advance before being able to successfully pierce key strategic points. Soviet forces managed to not only stop the German advance, but wear down their defences and resources to the point where they could launch a successful counter-offensive.
