New Historical Campaign for Korsun Pocket
Matrix Games (http://www.matrixgames.com) is pleased to announce that "Across the Dnepr" has been completed and is available for purchase. "Across the Dnepr" is a new campaign scenario for the Korsun Pocket game. It recreates the events of July 1941, when Operation Barbarossa was in full swing and German armies were poised to enter the heartland of Russia. Army Group Center is aimed at the vital objective of Smolensk, located on the Dnepr river and defending the shortest route to Moscow.
David Heath, Director of Operations for Matrix Games, said “If you thought Korsun Pocket was a great game prepare to be amazed by Strategic Studies Group (http://www.ssg.com.au)again with Across the Dnepr.”

Although their frontier armies had been overwhelmed, the Red Army was far from finished. Remnant forces kept fighting and new formations arrived on the battlefield, ordered to make immediate, if somewhat suicidal, counterattacks. The result is a swirling melee as the two armies clash head on, and notions of flank security are abandoned in a desperate fight for survival.

Each Russian casualty, whether man or machine, can ultimately be replaced from Russia 's vast reserve, reserves the Germans simply don't have. Each day that the Germans are delayed at Smolensk is another day purchased for the defense of Moscow and the rest of Russia .

GAME FEATURES
- 28 day campaign length scenario
- Huge battlefield with superb map graphics
- Special rules for Soviet entrenchment
- Improved AI scripting
- 117 Soviet divisions confront 35 German divisions

Across the Dnepr is only available via download from Matrix Games. More information can be found at www.korsunpocket.com . Across the Dnepr requires v1.1 or later of Korsun Pocket to play.

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager gets release date.

"But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? " - US President John F. Kennedy ; 1962.

On July 20th 1969, the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed. For the first time in history, human beings walked on the Moon. The conquest of space that had started a few years after the end of WWII reached its climax with a manned lunar landing. In competition with the USSR, the US gained a decisive advantage when images of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and their lunar exploration module were broadcast on live TV all over the world from the Sea of Tranquillity. President Kennedy won his historic gamble by landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth before the end of the decade. A whole new era of space conquests was opened…
