    Battle of Kursk

    Everyone should know about this one.

    Last chance the Germans had to gain iniative on the Eastern Front even if it was ill conceived.

    Needs a good modern movie that can become a July4th classic.

    Lol, go back to the bbq, beer and bratwursts, happy holidays.

    By the numbers, it looks like the Germans kicked arse. But in the end they lost.
