The Day The German’s Tactics Were Foiled

upsocl

The Battle of Kursk was a battle that occurred during the second World War between German and Soviet forces in July and August of 1943. During this battle, the Germans hoped to be able to weaken the Soviets by taking out large numbers of their men. They also hoped they could capture many of the Soviet men to use as slaves.

The Soviets, however, knew about the plans months before it was put into play, thanks to the British allies. They were able to put together barricades, minefields, firing zones, and more. In the end, the Battle of Kursk became the first battle the Germans had their tactics foiled.
