Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Citadel, " the codename for the German attack at Kursk in 1943, was the last major German offensive to be launched in the East. The greatest clash of armored forces in history, Kursk was the decisive land battle of the Second World War. The aim was to claw back the initiative after the surrender of the German Sixth Army at Stalingrad. The location, chosen by Hitler, was in the heartland of the Ukraine. But forewarned of German plans, the Red Army prepared to defend the Kursk salient in massive strength and depth. Distinguished military historian Robin Cross presents a detailed picture of the Battle of Kursk, from the intense cat-and-mouse game waged by both high commands in the agonizing months leading up to the German offensive, to the first-hand experiences of troops on the ground and the airmen who flew over the blazing steppe. At the same time, he sets Operation Citadel firmly within the wider strategic context of the war in the East, revealing how Hitler and Stalin steeled themselves to make decisions that would determine the outcome of the war and shape the peace that followed.
