German Tanks In World War II: Nazi Germany developed numerous tank designs used in World War II. In addition to domestic designs, Germany also used various captured and foreign-built tanks. German tanks were an important part of the Wehrmacht and played a fundamental role during the whole war, and especially in the blitzkrieg battle strategy. In the subsequent more troubled and prolonged campaigns, German tanks proved to be adaptable and efficient adversaries to the Allies. When the Allied forces technically managed to surpass the earlier German tanks in battle, they still had to face the experience and skills of the German tank crews and most powerful and technologically advanced later tanks, such as the Panther, the Tiger I and Tiger II, which had the reputation of being fearsome opponents.
There were two Battles Of El Alamein in World War II, both fought in 1942. The Battles occurred in North Africa, in Egypt, in and around an area named after a railway stop called El Alamein: The First Battle Of El Alamein (July 1-27,1942) and The Second Battle of El Alamein (October 23 - November 4, 1942). In addition, the Battle Of Alam El Halfa (August 30 - September 5, 1942) was fought between both battles and in the same location. At the First Battle Of El Alamein, the advance of Axis troops on Alexandria was blunted by the Allies, stopping the German Panzers that were trying to outflank the Allies position. At the Second Battle Of El Alamein, Allied forces broke the Axis line and forced them all the way back to Tunisia. Winston Churchill, the British Prime Minister at the time, said of this victory: "Now this is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning." After the war, he wrote: "Before Alamein we never had a victory. After Alamein, we never had a defeat."
The Battle Of Kursk was the largest full-scale battle in history, and history's largest tank battle, the critical Second World War military engagement between Nazi Germany and Soviet forces that broke the back of germany's military on the Eastern Front of World War II. The battle was the final strategic offensive that the Germans were able to launch on the Eastern Front, and it occurred near Kursk (450 kilometres or 280 miles south-west of Moscow) in the Soviet Union, during July and August 1943. Because the Allied invasion of Sicily began during the battle, Adolf Hitler was forced to divert troops training in France to meet the Allied threat in the Mediterranean, rather than using them as a strategic reserve for the Eastern Front. Largely because of this, Hitler canceled the offensive at Kursk after only a week. Germany's extensive losses of men and tanks ensured that the victorious Soviet Red Army enjoyed the strategic initiative for the remainder of the war. The Battle of Kursk was the first time in the Second World War that a German strategic offensive was halted before it could break through enemy defences and penetrate to its strategic depths. Though the Red Army had succeeded in winter offensives previously, their counter-offensives after the German attack at Kursk were their first successful summer offensives of the war.
