No 1. Battle of Kursk – July 5, 1943 to July 13, 1943

This battle took place 450 kilometers south of Moscow, in the Vicinity of Kursk when Germany launched its 3rd offensive of the summer. It was a battle that would be remembered as largest tank battle in history. It also involved the costliest single day of aerial warfare. The battle of Kursk was the victory of engineers, infantry, and artillery over armored forces as the Soviets blunted the German panzer spearheads in an interconnected web of minefields, defensive strongpoints, and concealed anti-tank guns.

Germany faced 100,000 casualties and Soviets lost 250,000 of their men in addition to 600,000 injured.
