Kursk: The Greatest Battle – Eastern Front, 1943

Shortlisted for the British Army Book of the Year

Praise for Kursk:

General the Lord Dannatt, former Chief of the General Staff
‘The outstanding military book of 2011 for me is Lloyd Clark’s Kursk. Many military people have talked about mankind’s largest tank battle without having had the opportunity to study it in the depth it deserves. Clark’s masterful study not only rectifies this deficiency but also places the battle in its wider context of the whole campaign on the Eastern Front. Moreover the book is highly enjoyable for both military student and casual reader alike.’

The Sunday Times
‘His narrative is both moving in its use of testimony of ordinary soldiers and insightful in its interpretation of the generals’ strategy.’

Defence Focus

‘With plenty of technical detail, and effective accounts from the men who were there, Clark has certainly done his research.’
