Third, there is the persistent myth that the clash in front of the town of Prokhorovka was indeed the "largest tank battle" with thousands of tanks smashed into a space no larger than a few square miles.
Yet, to the Germans this signaled the arrival of the large Soviet reserves at a time when their own divisions were bogging down (due primarily to a lack of infantry divisions).
This lead to the clash at Prokhorovka, which thus was not necessarily "unexpected" by the Germans.
