The Battle of Kursk by Nicholas Trudgian
THE BATTLE OF KURSK
by Nicholas Trudgian
On 5 July, 1943 over 6000 German and Russian tanks clashed near the town of Kursk, just 300 miles south of Moscow. It was the beginning of what became the greatest tank battle in history. In the skies above this conflagration, an air battle of monumental proportions raged, with the German and Russian air forces locked in combat. This was war on a scale hitherto never imagined.
Nicolas Trudgian's painting records the dramatic events at Kursk in a spectacular rendition that captures the very essence of this mighty land and air battle. Dominating the scene are a pair of Ju-87s. Having knocked out two T34s, they weave over the landscape as they try to avoid the attentions of Russian Yak 9s, the gunner of Rudel's aircraft - in the foreground - blazing away with his machine gun. A pair of Fw19Os have entered the fray, and the air is filled with smoke and cordite.
