Immense in scope, ferocious in nature, and epic in consequence, the Battle of Kursk witnessed (at Prokhorovka) one of the largest tank engagements in world history and led to staggering losses. Going well beyond all previous accounts, David Glantz and Jonathan House now offer the definitive work on arguably the greatest battle of World War II.
David M. Glantz is the author of The Battle for Leningrad, 1941-1944, Stumbling Colossus: The Red Army on the Eve of World War, Zhukov's Greatest Defeat: The Red Army's Epic Disaster in Operation Mars, and When Titans Clashed: How the Red Army Stopped Hitler, all published by Kansas. Jonathan M. House is professor of military history at the U.S. Army Command & General Staff College and the author of Towards Combined Arms Warfare and Military Intelligence, 1870-1991. Glantz and House also coauthored When Titans Clashed: How the Red Army Stopped Hitler.
