The first volume of the long awaited 2 volume photo study of the Battle of Kursk which promises something for everyone, whether serious historian, WW II enthusiast or hobbyist. This first volume covers the Southern sector of the attack culminating in the tank battle at Prokhorovka. The SS Panzer Korps, with the 1., 2. and 3.SS Panzer-Grenadier-Divisions, the Grossdeutchland Pazergrenadier Division and the 503 Heavy Tank Battalion all fought in this sector. The book includes hundreds of photos, most previously unpublished or miscaptioned in the past by less careful authors, which tell the story of this crucial German gamble in the summer of 1943. The color profiles included are to the Author's usual very high standards and the included maps succinctly describe the unit positions of both sides during various phases of the onslaught. Not just a photo album, the book includes a discussion of the operational concepts that led to the fighting, force comparisons and a! description of the objectives of the opposing forces. A detailed day-by-day description of the actions of all German units involved in the attack in this sector is also included. Finally, the authors lay to rest several misconceptions and legends surrounding this epic battle and provide irrefutable evidence that German losses were not nearly so great as Soviet and other sources have long claimed. Includes 702 photos, 48 pages of color vehicle, equipment and aircraft illustrations, 4 color maps and 3 pages of color tactical insignia.
