January 1944. 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 breakout attempt from the pocket. Less than half of the encircled forces escaped the trap, with none of their heavy weapons or equipment.
Battle For Korsun is a simulation of these battles in January and February 1944. Players control the various German and Soviet forces which took part in these struggles. The Soviet player must coordinate the offensives of his Fronts to encircle the Germans quickly before the Germans powerful reinforcements arrive. The German player must form a pocket perimeter, then orchestrate his relief drive with his Panzer divisions to rescue their trapped comrades

Do not buy
This game certainly looked like a good one, but five months on, I have yet to get past turn three because it crashes every time. The developer was contacted about this bug in December, and promised to look into it. It will be May tomorrow, and still no update. Unplayable. Other games from this developer have displayed the same problems. Maybe they work on desktop, but definitely not on mobile.
Crashes Every Time
I love this game ... until it crashes or freezes. So far, I’ve played it about a dozen times and this has happened each and every time. My device is an iPad with the latest software. Hopefully an update is on the way to fix these issues. If not, this was a waste of ten bucks.
