German Summer Offensive

The tide of war had turned against the Germans in 1942. As they fell back from the disaster at Stalingrad, a German counteroffensive left a bulge in the Russian defensive line around the city of Kursk. In the Spring and early Summer of 1943, the Germans prepared an offensive against that bulge, using their latest tank, the Panther, and their remaining tank forces in the East. But the Russians, with their large number of T-34's, were ready. The result would be the largest tank battle of the war at Prokhorovka, but one that the Germans would not win. And with their defeat, the Russian advance could not be stopped short of Berlin.

1-kilometer hexes, 2 hour turns, with a master map measuring approximately 380 by 300 kilometers. Over 4,700 units represent the German and Soviet forces in this classic battle of encirclement, mainly at battalion and company level.

Players control tank, reconnaissance, artillery, infantry, parachute, engineer, remote controlled demolition vehicles, antitank, flak, rocket, headquarters, and a wide variety of other specialized units.

18 historically based scenarios are included, with several "what-if" scenarios. There are several grand historical scenarios with options to play either the north or south offensive and a complete campaign lasting 121 turns.


  • Kursk '43 can be viewed and played in either 2d or 3d mode. A new "quick play" feature allows the computer AI's turn to resolve ten times the previous speed, allowing for much faster play.
  • A new "On-Map Results" feature provides a simplified combat result displayed directly on the map, eliminating the need to view and acknowledge a separate dialog box. This new feature greatly speeds game play in all playing modes whether against the AI, PBEM, or Network play.
  • Supports single person play against the computer, two-person hot-seat, two-person Play-By-E-Mail, and multiplayer network play over LANs and the Internet.
  • Complete on-line Help documentation plus on-line printable documentation in Microsoft Word format.
