The Clash of Steel at Kursk
It is a matter of profound indifference to the world whether we hold Kursk or not. So why do we want to attack in the East at all?
You’re quite right. Whenever I think of this attack my stomach turns over.
It’s July 1943, on the endless plains of Russia, in a clash of the giants, the Soviet Red Army defends the Motherland against its German invaders from such fearsome formations as the 2nd SS and 11th Panzer Division. Centered on the area of Kursk in 1943, Stalin’s Triumph places you in the fighting in and around the northern and southern flanks of the battle.
Stalin’s Triumph is the third game in the Nations At War series from Lock ‘N Load Publishing. Stalin’s Triumph depicts platoon level combat on the Eastern Front during World War II. All of the vehicles, men and weapons of the Soviet and German armies that fought in and around the area of Kursk in the summer of 1943.
