A monumental, enthralling work charting the greatest land battle of all time which changed the course of World War Two, by a highly regarded military expert 5th July 1943: the greatest land battle of all time began around the town of Kursk in Russia. This epic confrontation between German and Soviet forces was one of the most important military engagements in history and epitomised 'total war'. It was also one of the most bloody, characterised by hideous excess and outrageous atrocities. It was a monumental and decisive encounter of breathtaking intensity which became a turning point, not only on the Eastern Front, but in the Second World War as a whole. As Churchill noted, for Russia, 'Stalingrad was the end of the beginning, but the Battle of Kursk was the beginning of the end'. Using the very latest available archival material including the testimonies of veterans and providing strategic perspective alongside personal stories of front line fighting, Lloyd Clark has written a lucid, enthralling and heart-stopping account of this incredible battle.

“Very noisy indeed on the Eastern Front”

Difficult thing to write about, the Battle of Kursk. For one thing, nobody knows where Kursk is. Just a dot, really, on the limitless plains of central Russia. For another, it’s not one of those cosy, intimate battles... More
