I would suggest the book "The Battle of Kursk" by David Glantz although its not exactly for the casual reader.

https://www.amazon.ca/Battle-Kursk-D.../dp/0700613358

If memory server correct, 'Blitzkrieg no longer' might be a more casual read although it is not exclusively on Kursk.

Would have to find which box I have it in to double check. Its not in same box as the Kursk book.

The band Sabaton has a song about Kursk called Panzerkampf. They are known for writing songs about war.

This site is an amazing reference for Soviet vehicles during the Great Patriotic War.

This page is about foreign trucks in Soviet service.

A 97 year old veteran of the battle went to the movie, and said it was spot on on . Nolan nails it again.
