SSG has really achieved something unique by creating a system that takes the traditional hex-based operational wargame about as far as it's going to go.

SSG have created one of the most impressive wargames I've seen with Battle in Italy. The game has plenty of depth, quality AI and plenty of replay value. Seasoned wargamers will love what's on offer and thanks to a collection of well written tutorials everyone else can enjoy this hex-based classic.

Korsun Pocket

Release Date: 1 AUG 2003

Korsun Pocket places you on the Russian Front in January 1944 in command of the German or Soviet forces and masterfully re-creates the savage and desperate fighting in what historians have said could have been another Stalingrad along the Dnepr River.
