Thunder At Prokhorovka from the Author: David Schranck. After the defeat at Stalingrad, Hitler had lost his momentum and was looking for a way to regain it. Operation Citadel was the intended means to fulfill that objective. If successful, a number of Soviet armies would be destroyed and the front line shortened, allowing for a better disposition of troops and a chance to rebuild Germany's exhausted reserves. This book provides comprehensive coverage of the operational events on both salients. It also includes critical analysis of both sides that points out errors of judgment or application that collectively had an important impact on campaign results. The book is highly annotated to give the reader additional sources to study and to provide additional perspectives to gain as complete an understanding of this critical campaign as possible. Besides an extensive text, the book's key strength is its mapping - 32 full-page color maps are accompanied by 7 large foldout sheets of maps, also in color. Together these specially commissioned maps provide a remarkably detailed guide to the combat operations. Thunder at Prokhorovka is destined to become an important reference to the Battle of Kursk.

Zitadelle from the Author: Mark Healy. This account of the great tank battle at Kursk, the turning point of the German Eastern offensive in July 1943, is a detailed and valuable analysis of the German and Russian actions during the confrontation. It describes fully the German attempt to excise the Kursk Salient, and the brilliant Russian defenses instigated during German delays which ultimately led to the defeat of the panzers and the Soviet advance on the Reich. The German and Russian tactics, plans, and realities of war on sodden battlefields are fully explored, and new light is shed on the scale of the German defeat, which has been exaggerated for years without question by historians who relied on Soviet accounts of the battle. It is brought to life by maps and a wide collection of photographs taken during the campaign.
