He also brings up a key issue that is rarely mentioned in other books. By July 9th, it was obvious that 3rd PzC was too far behind to assist 2nd SS PzC in attacking Prokhorovka by attacking 5th GTA. Why didn't Manstein commit the 24th PzC which was in reserve to help speed up the advance of Kemp's forces. With the slow progress the Germans were making, it seemed an appropriate response. The author is on a mission to strike down fallacy and to promote the truth. It was a very interesting, worthwhile commentary.
