Kursk - Greatest Tank Battle in History

The battle of Kursk is the greatest tank battle in the history of warfare. The video below is from Youtube and shows the might of the German tank and how they were used during the blitzkrieg. Kursk 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. The Battle of Kursk was the first battle in which a Blitzkrieg offensive had been defeated before it could break through enemy defenses and into its strategic depths. More info here at Wikipedia
