Kursk – The Greatest Tank Battle is a comprehensive history of the last time that Germany held the strategic initiative in the war against the Soviet Union. Once that initiative was lost, the course was set for the eventual destruction of the Nazi state by a vengeful Red Army. The book’s authoritative text is complemented with detailed maps explaining the troop movements and appendices with information on orders of battle, losses and equipment. In addition, there are 16 pages of colour artworks of tanks, aircraft, small arms and uniforms used at Kursk, as well as 150 black-and-white photographs. Kursk is an expert account of the moment when the Nazi state lost the initiative against the USSR and how then the course was set for the eventual destruction of Nazi Germany.
