05 Soviet Storm - The Battle of Moscow (1941)
Episode 5 of a documentary series about the German invasion of the Soviet Union made for Russian television.
Ten weeks after the start of Operation Barbarossa, Army Group Center reaches Moscow.
During their march on Moscow, Hitler ordered Army Group Center's armour southward in order to encircle a large group of Russian infantry near Kiev. The Germans successfully captured hundreds of thousands of Russian infantry but the diversion threw them off schedule and delayed their approach on the Russian capital. When they finally began their march on Moscow, the autumn rains made the roads impassable for weeks and then the winter set in.
