Kursk wasn't even a victory for the Soviets.
They stopped the german army and completely nuked its motorised and armored elements, they had six fast cores en route to the combat area, Germans had nothing, thats a strategic victory right there.
The invasion in Italy happened and the german commanders were shocked and dismayed to be forced to leave the battle and go fight the invasion.
They had nothing to fight with BB, nothing at all, Panzerwaffe amounted to some 200 vehicles, thats tanks and self propelled guns, Russians still had well over a 700 armored vehicles in the area and more than 500 less than a day off.
Whether Wehrmacht stayed or not it was game over, the Soviet offensive in the following weeks showed just how huge the disparity was.
How you can say the Soviets had been better than the Germans is beyond me..
44-45? Better equipment, better tactics, better unit cooperation, better soldiers, they still suffered major losses due to their commanders simply not giving a sh*t about human life and due to political demands of Stalin but in all essentials of war RKKA was, in the last two years of the war superior to the Wechrmacht.
In 1943 its still an army in the process of transition though.
the kill ratio till the end in Berlin was 5 to 10 : 1
Thats true for every major city assault BB, the kill ratio in Warsaw in September 1939 was 6:1 in favour of the Poles, the kill ratio in Stalingrad was 3:1 in favor of the Russians etc.
Germans had time and resources to fortify themselves and determination to duke it out hardcore so there's nothing special in it from the military point of view.
they NEEDED human waves to kill enough of these efficient soldiers. 10:1
Oh please, in Belarus, Ukraine, in Romania and Hungary Soviets had less than 30% more troops and by 1945 most of these efficient soldiers were dead, the reasons why Berlin went the way it went are listed above, plus Konev and Zhukov were in a hurry.
(normally those armies win which make their enemy die in greater numbers than their own)
Nope, normally armies win when they beat the enemy to a bloody pulp and have enough juice left to keep the spoils of victory.
They only had their people to throw at the Germans...not brain or smart tactics.
So you're saying that they knocked Germans back 100km after Kursk in the space of a few weeks by human waves not smart tactics?
Briansk encirclement was human waves? Stalingrad encirclement was human waves? Defeating Hungary was human waves?
