Battle of Kursk
The Battle of Kursk was German and Soviet operations on the Eastern Front of World War II in the vicinity of the city of Kursk in the Soviet Union in July and August 1943. It remains both the largest series of armored clashes, including the Battle of Prokhorovka, and the costliest single day of aerial warfare. 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.
Play as either the Soviet Red Army of the vaunted Germans. Battles will be happening all weekend
