The Victory of Kursk - 1943 by EduardoLeon The Victory of Kursk - 1943 by EduardoLeon
Soviets celebrate the hard and bloody victory at Kursk, one of the most important battles (or perhaps the most important) of the Second World War.

The Battle of Kursk (05-23 July 1943) remains as the largest tank battle of all time. Nearly 5,128 Soviet tanks faced 2,928 German tanks. The battle also includes the largest number of aircraft losses in a single day of the war.

In Kursk, the Soviet army showed that stopping the German Blitzkrieg was not impossible. Breaking most of the strong German army, the Soviets managed to take another big step toward victory.

This drawing is a reference to a photo.

A4. I used pencil 6B, 4B and HB.

Soviéticos comemoram a difícil e sangrenta vitória em Kursk, uma das batalhas mais importantes (ou talvez a mais importante) da Segunda Guerra Mundial.

A Batalha de Kursk (05-23 de Julho de 1943) mantém-se como a maior batalha de blindados de todos tempos. Praticamente 5.128 tanques Soviéticos enfrentaram 2.928 tanques alemães. A batalha ainda inclui o maior número de perdas aéreas em um só dia da guerra.

Em Kursk o exército soviético mostrava que parar a Blitzkrieg alemã não era impossível. Esfacelando boa parte do forte exército alemão, conseguiram dar mais um grande passo rumo a vitória.

Esse é um desenho de referência a uma foto.

Folha A4, Lápis 6B, 4B e HB.

"(or perhaps the most important)"
That might be unduly diminishing the importances of the battles of Britain, El-Alamein, Midway, Bir-Hakeim, operation Merkür, etc. Those were critical too, by they Allies victories or defeats.

Not diminish the importance of any, just said Kursk may be the most important.

Also found odd. I and a few others suspect that it is a false image about the battle. Even so the original image is beautiful.

Yes sure, and I like he has a cross, it´s awful that communism wanted to destroy religion and culture so badly.

Religion - of course, but culture? Ha, religion always aimed at destroying cultures. How many of them were erased thanks to Abrahamic cults?
