Great Kursk Battle (July 5 - August 23, 1943) completed the radical change in the Great Patriotic War: the last major offensive of German fascist troops on the Soviet-German front of the Second World War was disrupted, the strategic initiative finally passed to the Soviet Army.

The Battle of Kursk was the triumph of Soviet military art. In the 50-day battle on the Kursk Bulge, up to 30 enemy divisions were defeated, including 7 tank divisions. The total losses of German-fascist troops killed, seriously wounded and missing were over 500,000 people. The Soviet Air Force finally won supremacy in the air.
