Battle of Kursk, World War II – 1943


Battle of Kursk, World War II – 1943

Location: Kursk, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union
Result:Decisive Soviet Strategic victory

The Battle of Kursk refers to German and Soviet operations on the Eastern Front of World War II in the vicinity of the city of Kursk in July and August 1943. It remains both the largest series of armoured clashes, including the Battle of Prokhorovka, and the costliest single day of aerial warfare to date. It was the last strategic offensive the Germans were able to mount in the east. The resulting decisive Soviet victory gave the Red Army the strategic initiative for the rest of the war.
