In the summer of 1943, after the bitter struggle for Stalingrad, more than two million men and 8,000 tanks of the Soviet and German armies fought one of the pivotal battles of the Second World War at Kursk, 400 miles south of Moscow. Showalter's history reviews the strategy and tactics of the politicians and battlefield commanders on both sides as well as exploring the unique dynamics of tank warfare and its effect on men's minds as well as their bodies.
