The situation changed later in the war. The Red Army regained initiative in strategic operations in tremendous battles of 1943 and learned to use the quantity to reach the tactical superiority on the battlefields.

The propaganda banner shows the main approach of the Red Army to the offense. The painfully gained experience taught the hot tempered commanders that the frontal attack of the prepared defense hurt dearly.
