Kursk Salient Map

The Kursk salient was a huge bulge in the Russian front line around the city of Kursk, protruding westward, in 1943, during World War II. It was located between the Don and the Dnieper rivers, southwest of Moscow, with the city of Orel lying to the north of the bulge and Kharkov to the south. The Wehrmacht would launch a powerful counterattack at the salient from the north and south in July 1943, triggering the Battle of Kursk.
