Description: The battle of Moscow took place between October 1941 and January 1942. The German strategic offensive, named Operation Typhoon failed to capture the capital of  the Soviet Union and proved that the German army is not invincible as everyone thought. As the German attack was halted, a Soviet strategic counter-offensive operations forced the German armies back to the positions around the cities of Oryol, Vyazma and Vitebsk, nearly surrounding three German armies. But  since Germans were so close to Moscow, the question remains what would happened if their tanks would break the Soviet defense? Was it possible to finish the war at the eastern front at 1941? Players are welcome to try it by themselves. The game covers German offensive at Moscow and the first soviet counter-offensive.
