I had read a great deal about the battle of Kursk before I read this book. I thought I knew about the battle. I did not. Anyone interested in Kursk and thinks they know the facts, read this book, you will be surprised. Excellent read.

Format: Hardcover
In the introduction, a capsule summary of the key events of the war before the Battle of Kursk is given and includes Barbarossa, Stalingrad, the Soviet offensive after Stalingrad in AGS sector and the retaking of Kharkov by Manstein in Feb, Mar 1943. Still in summary but with a greater level of detail, the author describes Kursk. At this juncture, Mr Nipe goes to great length to discuss the tank battles near Prochorovka as well as the false propaganda and exaggerations of German losses that have surfaced over the years about that fateful July 12th. The author provides statistics of the losses of that fateful day but as he concludes this Kursk summary, he simply states that even if you didn't have the correct casualty figures, all you would need to know that the Soviet numbers were high was a knowledge of the level of resistance and destruction the 2nd SS PzC (minus LAH) levied on the 1st Tank Army, the 5th GTA and others at the Mius River and at the Merla / Merchik Rivers. Once you read this book you will understand the capability the German panzer corps still had during the last half of July and all of August.
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.

In mid July, after the Allies landed on Sicily and Citadel was becoming too costly, Hitler calls off his offensive.

In mid July, after the Allies landed on Sicily and Citadel was becoming too costly, Hitler calls off his offensive. This is when the author leaves summary mode and begins a detailed study and analysis of the next six weeks of battle when the Soviets launched their own offensives to the south of the Kursk salient. The battle action begins in mid July in the Mius River area when Tolbukhin's Southern Front launches a diversionary attack against 6th Army to draw German forces away from the Kursk salient. The subsequent German counterattack to regain lost ground of the newly formed Soviet bridgehead was especially revealing and costly.
