Book Description

18 Aug 2011 Images of War
The greatest tank battle in world history, known as Operation CITADEL, opened during the early hours of 5 July 1943, and its outcome was to decide the eventual outcome of the war on the Eastern Front. A highly collectable addition to the Images of War series, Battle of Kursk 1943 is a superbly illustrated account of this pivotal battle of the war on the Eastern Front, when the Germans threw 900,000 men and 2,500 tanks against 1,300,000 soldiers and 3,000 tanks of the Red Army in a savage battle of attrition.Unlike many pictorial accounts of the war on the Eastern Front, the book draws upon both German and Russian archive material, all of which are rare or unpublished. The images convey the true scale, intensity and horror of the fighting at Kursk, as the Germans tried in vain to batter their way through the Soviet defensive systems. The battle climaxed at the village of Prokhorovka, which involved some 1,000 tanks fighting each other at point-blank range.During this vicious two week battle the Red Army dealt the Panzerwaffe a severe battering from which the German war effort was never to recover. The Battle of Kursk finally ended the myth of German invincibility.

2.0 out of 5 stars So Very Flawed.... 8 Jan 2013
By Jack M. Crook - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With limited historical text that is so blatantly pro-German, a good overview of this important battle of the Eastern Front is not forth coming. From reading the content, it's almost as if the Germans had won the battle, and its treatment of the Waffen SS divisions is almost heroic in nature. The pictures are numerous, but again they are all German photos, none from the Red Army. I have been most pleased with other books in Images of War series, but this is too flawed for a good recommendation.

I expected a written history but instead I got a pictorial. I was very disappointed & should get a credit.

Searching for images on google will provide more pictures and much less vapid commentary. May be better in print but is useless on kindle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Pro German 18 Mar 2013
By DRB - Published on
For some reason the western world wants to embrace on the German side of the war. Anything the Russians say is regarded as pure propaganda. The fact is the USSR won this battle and they are the ones who captured Berlin and nothing is going to change those two facts. As the other reader mentioned it is Kursk from the German perspect. Yes, the 2nd SS Panzer Corps performed very well especially the Leibstandarte and Totenkopf divisions. Yet, they did not perform well enough. Some ok photos but there are much better photo albums of this battle out there.
