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.
