I’ve been getting a sense that the Germans fight better in the summer than winter. I wonder what this coming summer will bring?

Next to impossible to fight effectively during the brutal Russian winter. Hitler would have known this if he had studied Napoleon as carefully as he studied Frederick the Great.

What was ahead for the summer? The last great German offensive on the Eastern Front: Operation Citadel (the Battle of Kursk) July 1943.
