Twelve days of ferocious battle wore both sides down to the bone. Each German push was met with a Soviet counterattack in places like Ponyri and Prokhorovka, until finally the Allied invasion of Sicily forced Hitler to recall his troops. --- (Episode details below)

____________
German divisions had not expected the level of resistance they met from the Soviets, and their planned advance was behind schedule. At the same time, the Soviets were concerned by the breaches in their first level of defense and by the Tiger tanks which so decisively outgunned their T-34. Fighting on the north side of the Kursk salient came to focus on the small Russian town of Ponyri, where the Germans saw an opportunity to break through and encircle the Soviet defenders. But every time they took control, the Soviets countered and took it back, until finally it became clear that they would never hold Ponyri and could only hope to divert troops from reinforcing the Soviet line elsewhere. But in the south, General Vatutin of the USSR had come up with a clever strategy: he literally buried his T-34 tanks up to the turrets, making them fortified anti-tank guns whose small profile negated the range advantage of the Tiger. His methods were extremely effective, but the Germans continued to fight forward inch by bloody inch. The Soviets needed to hold until reinforcements arrived. An attempted counterattack failed, but managed to slow the Germans, as did the sudden arrival of rainy weather that bogged down their materiel. In the midst of this, the brutal war criminals in the SS Division fought on with a ferocity best exemplified by Joachim Krüger, who once ripped off his pants to escape a smoke grenade and charged bare-assed at a Russian tank. But this wild back and forth could not continue. On July 12, 1943, the Germans sought a decisive outcome through a hard push at Prokhorovka. They did not get it, and the tides quickly turned against them. The Allies invaded Sicily, pressuring Hitler. He gave the command to withdraw the troops at Kursk, over his commanders' objections. His general, Erich von Manstein, attempted one final assault just as Stalin's long-planned counterattack rolled out in full force. The Soviets routed the Germans and collapsed their Eastern Front. Over the course of the war, they continued to push the German forces back - all the way to Berlin in 1945.

It's a bit oversimplified to call all Waffen SS members war criminals across the board. As an organization, they had a very evil purpose, and to a large extent, yes, they were war criminals, but some of them were just elite soldiers that were not part of the regular army.

Soviets developed new defensive tactics for infantry while preparing for this battle. They were no longer a straight line. They were more like pockets with 800 meters distance between them. This way more power could be concentrated in one position and if tanks tried to take this bottleneck, they would expose their sides to antitank guns.

But the Germans did launched offensives in the east. While they may be small offensives that did not succeed the Germans still launch an offensive. I do not know if you mean the Germans did have the capabilities to mount a huge offensives. In that regard I will agree with you on that but in general for offensive I will disagree. Overall, excellent video series on that Battle of Kursk. I enjoyed the animation and the reasons why Germany needed a breakthrough on the Eastern Front. Good video keep up the good work.

What’s important to note is that no troops were actually diverted to the allied landings. Hitlers just needed that excuse to satiate his generals who wanted to keep going

Fun fact: In Russia, they to this day call Nazis "fascists", like fascists in Italy (just like the narrator does in some cases), following Soviet history teachings. It is not a mistake. Since Nazi stands for "national-socialist", and Soviets considered themselves to be socialistic, the original name hit too close to home.

You say as if it was just tigers at kursk but it was not like that around 312 tigers were present and 712 PZ 4s and 668 PZ 3s And both were under armoured and mobile but yes there guns packed a huge punch And there were countless Stugs And other SPGs to so you image of kursk should not be of tigers and panthers rolling over soviet lines It should be SPGS panzer 4s and 3s grinding forward and being lead by these tigers and panthers And where the heck is tiger 231?

On a video about a Moc battle for the Russians at Stalingrad this dude said that the Russians didn’t need allied help but thanks to the African campaign and the invasion of Sicily the Russians even held a meeting in Iran to ask for a new front
Really, I'd rather not.
At 6:52, I think the "greater than" sign should be a "less than". I think I want to hear more about the depth of the Kursk defenses. The idea of a 100km deep defensive position is just not something my mind can grasp.
