Kursk is a city located in modern day Russia.
It became famous after one of the largest tank battle in History was fought here between Soviet and German forces during The Second World War in 1943.

The battle ended with a decisive victory for the Red Army (Soviet Ground Army).
It left the German panzer units devistated and losses mounted beyond to what they could afford. The lost tanks would never be replaced during the rest of the war.

Many consider this to be the turning point in the war as it prohibited the Wehrmacht (German Land Army) to use their famous Blitzkrieg style warfare.
The Battle for Kursk took place at the Kursk salient.
