The bitter Russian winter of 1943/44 was matched by some of the toughest fighting of the ground war. Between the Carpathian Mountains and the Dneiper River elements of the 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler reinforced their fearsome reputation. Panthers of SS Pz.Rgt. 1 move forward to engage Soviet armour,passing a Tiger of the 13th Heavy Comapany LAH.Overhead, Fw190A's of Hptm Erich Rudorffer's II/JG54 lend support by hunting for Soviet ground attack aircraft ahead of the panzer spearhead.

In July 1943, 300 miles south of Moscow,the wide rolling grasslands of Kursk witness the greatest tank battle in history as 6,000 tanks meet in frenzied conflict. With close support from ground-attack aircraft of the Luftwaffe, German panzers advance through the wreckage of Russian armour. However, in what proved to be a turning point of the war in Russia, this battle was eventually won by the Soviets.
