    The main problem with your thesis of an attack from russia's southern underbelly is there are no powerful states in the region,infrastructure is poor,terrain is rough with mountains and desert like open spaces and its a landlocked region so a vast army will have trouble sustaining itself due to poor infrastructure and no nearby ports.It would also leave the centre of gravity of russian state untouched(western russia) and give it ample time to mobilize its resources.

    Germans would have lost kursk nonetheless.They lost the battle because they attacked too late after letting the soviets build up their defences for months.The russians knew the attack would come at kursk,zhukov had predicted this to stalin months ago.The code just told them the exact date.Once the defences were built up (attack delayed so the new tigers and panthers could participate in the attack)it meant the soviet defences were too strong for model's northern pincer .No matter how deep manstein's southern pincer advanced,without 2 pincers meeting up plan wouldn't have been a success.

    I like to think i have a funny side,i'm not sure.:-)
    Thanks for ur kind words levina.

    Edited with my favourite question i think.Thanks @WAJsal

    Is that why the title of the thread mis-spells your moniker? :D

    Very nice interview.
    He is more mature and knowledgeable than many people who are twice his age.
    He has also enriched this forum with his contents.
    Cheers @AUSTERLITZ :tup:

    Once again very good interview and a lot of good insight into different issues.
    Thank you @WAJsal , @Zaki and @AUSTERLITZ

    Just wanted to highlighted couple of points:
    Couldn't agree more. Human nature is such that if there is no accountability then it would stray from the right path.

    These two are very good ideas. I think both can be achieved with technology with ease.

    @AUSTERLITZ
    I really enjoy your threads.
    I just completed my engineering and now I realise that im more intersted in history than engineering.
    I really want to study history but at the same time I don't want to waste my engineering career.
    So what is your opinion? (PDF members too)

    You are a bit similar to me. I unleashed my interest in history by making a compromise....I made it one of my main hobbies.

    History based career is very tough one to orient after you have commited to something else in your studies.

    You can still study history while you work your engineering career. What you signed up for only becomes a real problem if all your passion is sapped for it. It need not be total lost cause simply because you have a bigger passion now (that you can dedicate your quality free time to)....given you still got solid passion for engineering too right?
