Zhukov exploits the delay and orders his men to dig for victory. They create an elaborate network of defenses to grind the enemy down - or blow them up...The two armies finally meet in a titanic clash of tanks - on a mind-blowing scale. It is the biggest tank battle of all time and the result changes the course of the war forever.
