The view towards the Prokhorovka monument from Ribbentropp ridge the site of the main armoured clash between LSSAH and 5th Guards Army.
Looking right along Ribbentropp ridge towards the railway ( In the tree line.) which marked the right flank of LssAH axis of advance. Das Reich advanced parallel with LssAH o n the other side of the line, whilst Totenkopf made slow headway in the marshy ground to the left of LssAH.
The monument to the battle at Prokhorovka. just lots and lots of tanks.
