Hi group,

75 years ago today, 12 July 1943, the massive tank battle of Prokharovka, during the battle of Kursk.

And at 0100 tonight on the other side of the world, the Battle of Kolombangara.

Thank you Fred. That was a heck of an armor on armor battle. So much dust, smoke and confusion that the aircraft and artillery on both sides couldn't do anything to help with the fighting. Must have really been something.

Thank you for sharing the date.
