The best wargame ever made for the PC. A monumental achievement in Game Design. It is the Mount Everest, the Beethoven's Ninth and the Moby Dick of PC Wargames, and it absolutely qualifies as a genuine work of art.

Korsun Pocket is arguably the best traditional hex-based wargame of all time. The runaway winner of wargame of the year and ranks among the best in the genre of all-time.

It is probably THE best hex strategy game out to date though, and indeed possibly one of the best single campaign one too.
