The Battle of Kursk took place when German and Russian forces confronted each other on the Eastern Front during World War II in the vicinity of the city of Kursk, 280 miles south of Moscow in July and August 1943. It remains both the largest series of armored clashes, including the Battle of Prokhorovka, and the largest battle in the history of the World. It was the final strategic offensive the Germans were able to mount in the east. The resulting decisive Russian victory gave the Red Army the strategic initiative for the rest of the war.
