From the publisher:

Mauled at Stalingrad, the German army looked to regain the initiative on the Eastern Front with a huge offensive launched near the city of Kursk, 280 miles southwest of Moscow. Armed with the new Panther tank, Hitler and Field Marshal Erich von Manstein were confident that they could inflict a crushing defeat on the Soviet Union. What they did not know is that the Soviets knew about the coming attack — and they were ready.
 
This book focuses on the southern front of this campaign, which involved more than 1,000 tanks in one of the biggest armor clashes of the war — the Battle of Prokhorovka. It examines in detail the tactics and mistakes of the army commanders as they orchestrated one of the bloodiest battles in World War II. Using campaign maps, photographs, and artwork, this new study serves as a companion to Kursk 1943: The Northern Front.

FSM says:
Diorama inspirations abound in the photos and descriptions of this titanic clash of armor.
