During their off-time from a Gettysburg game, anyone playing out Kursk?


Hmm, I thought that Kursk didn't start until July 11.

Preliminary fighting started in the southern face of the salient on the evening of 4 July 1943, when the German forces launched a reconnaissance-in-force in preparation for the main assault scheduled for 5 July.

That would explain the burning Volkswagens in my neighborhood this morning.

Unfortunately I don't have a game on Kursk but I am reading Zamulin's book, "Demolishing the myth."

Even though I am not certain this is the easiest battle to model or the most fun to play, what are the best wargames dealing with Kursk?
