Storyboard Text

  • In July during 1943, Germany would launch an attack on the Soviet city of Kursk.  This would be his response to the huge defeat he suffered at the battle of Stalingrad.  This battle would be Germany's last chance to regain dominance on the Western front.  This would also German's final blitzkrieg attack.
  • The battle of Kursk was between the Germans and the Soviet Union.  This would be a very large battle with lots of heavy artillery being used.
  • The battle of Kursk was the most tank filled battle of any battle during World War II.  The battle used about 6,000 tanks in total.
  • Germany had a massive attack planned for the city of Kursk.  However, Hitler postponed the attack multiple times.  This gave the Soviets plenty of time to get ready for the coming attack.
  • There were two fronts to this battle, and they were the Northern Front and the Southern Front.  The Germans advanced on both fronts initially but were met with more Soviet resistance than they had planned for.  This would prove to be too much for the Germans as they ended up losing the battle.  
  • Both countries suffered significant losses.  However, the Soviet Union was far more considerable than the Germans.  The Soviets lost upwards of 400,000 men and the Germans lost just under 60,000 men.
  • Soviet losses
  • German losses
