"The battle of Kursk broke the back of the German army in 1943 and changed the entire course of WWII. It began on July 5, 1943, with a massive attack by the Nazis-committing the bulk of their armor, troops, and aircraft in Russia-against Soviet forces defending the Kursk area. The battle raged and seesawed back and forth for forty days. Only now are historians realizing the full importance and scope of this gigantic battle. . . truly the Waterloo of our times!"; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
