This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Eastern Front - Third Battle of Kharkov. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Third Battle of Kharkov was a series of battles on the Eastern Front of World War II, undertaken by the German Army Group South against the Red Army, around the city of Kharkov between February 19-March 15 1943.
As the Battle of Stalingrad was concluding in early February 1943, Soviet forces launched Operation Star. Conducted by Colonel General Filipp Golikov's Voronezh Front, the goals of the operation were the capture of Kursk and Kharkov. Spearheaded by 4 tank corps under Lieutenant-General Markian Popov, the Soviet offensive initially met with success and drove back German forces. On February 16, Soviet troops liberated Kharkov.
Dubbed the Donets Campaign by the Germans, the Third Battle of Kharkov saw them shatter 52 Soviet divisions while inflicting heavy losses on the Soviets. The German victory at the Third Battle of Kharkov set the stage for the massive Battle of Kursk that summer.
