  • The story of history's largest armored battle
  • Descriptions of Tigers, Panthers, and T-34s in combat
  • Based on declassified Russian documents and captured German records
  • A significant turning point of World War II, the battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943 was the Germans' last major offensive on the Eastern Front. Marked by pitched clashes between German Tiger tanks and Soviet T-34s, the engagement began well enough for the Germans, but the Soviets delayed them long enough to bring their reserves forward, counterattack, and force Hitler to call off the attack. Hundreds of thousands lay dead or wounded on both sides, but the Soviets won the battle and seized the initiative for the rest of the war.
  • Walter S. Dunn Jr., a recognized authority on the Soviet Union in World War II. He lives in Wisconsin.
