"Operation Zitadelle(citadel)" After the Stalingrad disaster Hitler needed a big victory.The Kursk salient(an earlier bulge)seemed as the right target.Being the logical next step in the German advance after conquering Kharkov in March 1943,the Russians anticipated this move. The massive troop set up and intelligence information from their "Lucy" spy network in Germany and intercepted ultra codes by the British gave the opportunity to trap the German forces and start a counter offensive.The military and some 300000 civilians set up massive minefields,tank traps,anti-tank gun positions,dug-in tanksand other fortifications.Furthermore huge forces were cocentrated.1,3 million men,3600 tanks,20000 pieces of artillery and 2400 planes were facing 90000 German soldiers,2700 tanks and 2000 planes.On the 4th of July 1943 the battle began.After both sides had massively bombed each other with artillery and air raids the German advance started with heavy losses of men and material.Most of the new tanks like Tiger,Panther and Elephant got stuck in the minefields and were shot to pices by anti tank artillery.Eventually the elite divisions "Grossdeutschland",and SS "LSSAH","Das Reich" and "Totenkopf" were pushing forward by forming the "Panzerkeil" meaning Tiger spearheads followed by Panther,PIV and PIII.Tanks were firing at each other at point blank range so both airforces were unable to join ground fight because the massive smoke and dust.It is reported that the temperatures in the center of the battle were so high that the bodies of the soldiers were burnt to ashes.When the allies landed in Sicily Hitler called off the operation.The Germans had lost around 100000 men dead or wounded and most of their armoured offensive capacities,the soviets 250000 dead,600000 wounded.
