Central Front on the north face of the Kursk Bulge, July 7th 1943: The most fiercely contested point on the north face of the Kursk salient occurred around the village of Ponyri, a critical town that German veterans referred to as "the Stalingrad of the Kursk salient". Here a bitter struggle raged for three days. The 18th and 9th Panzer divisions, along with the 292nd Infantry division, were thrown back five times by the Soviets who were supported by a full spectrum of self propelled guns, sappers, and other detachments who left the battlefield a landscape of smoking German panzers.
