Goofs

During the Battle of Kursk (July 1943), several of the German tanks are actually Russian T-55's, T-62's, and even a few IS-2's. Such tanks would not have been employed by the Wehrmacht (even though they did field a number of captured T-34's in the battle), especially as they had not been invented yet. See more »

One of the absolute best war movies ever !
19 October 2002 | by (Parry Sound Ont/Canada) – See all my reviews

One of the best WAR movies I have ever seen, it ranks on top of my list with "SAVING PRIVATE RYAN", "CROSS OF IRON", "WINDTALKER","COME AND SEE" etc... It's about the kursk-salient battle, the biggest tank battle of WW2. When I saw this movie in a small west german cinma (Bielefeld 1970), I was very impressed about every careful researched historical detail in this awesome and in the west absolutely unknown movie. The movie is also in color, with good special effects. The military hardware, tanks, planes and infantry weapons are historically correct. The acting was good, and there was not a boring minute in the whole movie. It takes you right into the action, after a brief but comprehensive introduction.
