Red Army wins the Battle of Kursk August 23, 1943


Today marks the anniversary of the end of the Battle of Kursk (August 23, 1943) where the soldiers of the Red Army emerged victorious at tremendous cost and turned the tide once and for all on the Eastern Front.


Kursk was the largest tank battle in human history and after Kursk -- though many hard days were still ahead -- the people of the Soviet Union through their courage and sacrifice had laid the path that would lead to the total defeat of the Third Reich just under two years later.
