Life Magazing has posted historical photographs and information about some of the world’s bloodiest battles. [Thanks, Cristina!]

A German soldier sits atop a now useless artillery gun beside the corpse of a comrade during the Battle of Kursk in July, 1943. The Soviet-German fight on the Eastern Front was the largest engagement of tanks in history, and included some of the largest air battles in history. Estimated total casualties run from 257,000 to 388,000. In the first three days of battle, the Soviets lost 386 aircraft.

    People seem to forget just how many people actually died in Soviet / German campaign. Without the Russians who suffered horrendous casulties, thw war would have a different ending.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote
    the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics
    to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
