This is an operational level game, for two players, of the battles that took place in January and February 1944 near the small Russian town of Korsun. The German Army had their last toehold on the Dneiper River. This salient projected between two powerful Soviet army groups, the 1st and 2nd Ukrainian Fronts. Though weakened in their previous efforts against the Germans, on January 25th and 26th, these two powerful groups attacked and surrounded two German corps. The Germans responded quickly to this threat, hurrying reinforcements from other sectors. Their relief drive made good initial progress, but stalled in the face of stiff Soviet resistance and both sides' antagonist, "General Mud". In the end, the trapped Germans made a desperate break out attempt from the pocket. Less than half of the encircled forces escaped the trap, with none of their heavy weapons or equipment. Players control the various German and Soviet forces which took part in these struggles.

Units are battalions and regiments for the Germans and regiments/brigades and divisions for the Soviets. Map scale is 3.2 Kms/hex and each turns represents two days.
