The Battle of Moscow

October 1941, Germany’s Army Group Center is only some 25 km west of Moscow. The Russian winter, however, is only a few weeks away. With not enough soldiers or military equipment, the Soviet high command’s only hope left is that the weather will save the capital. The battle ends in a bloody failure for the German Army, and it is forced to retreat.
