In memory of what happened this month 74 years ago in December 1941. In honor of Moscow's citizens and defenders. Created by Knut Åshammer / "EAF331_Stuntman". Made in War Thunder by Gaijin Entertainment. This movie depicts the historical Battle of Moscow. I respect those on both sides who fought and did their duty, though this video is dedicated to the Soviet perspective and stories from the battle.

Moscow - Москва́ - Moskau. The capital of USSR. A city that changed the course of history. In December 1941 the world held its breath and wondered - will Moscow fall? In a brutal winter storm below -40°C, the fate of the city were in the hands of the soldiers, tankers and pilots on both sides.

On 6th December, an all-out Soviet counteroffensive along the whole Moscow front, changed the course of the war and the future for the Soviet Union.

22nd June 1941: The Soviet Union is invaded. Moscow prepares for war. The Great Patriotic War begins.

21st July: 195 German Luftwaffe bombers, most of which were He-111 bombers, take off from an airfield near Smolensk to attack Moscow in multiple waves during the night. The resulting air alarms were the first to be sounded in the city. Moscow had strong anti-aircraft defences, the city was protected by 170 fighters, and the citizens were able to take shelter in the newly completed underground railway stations.

6th December: The Red Army launches a counteroffensive along the whole Moscow front at 0600 hours. Georg Hans Reinhardt orders his 3rd Panzer Army to fall back to Klin, while Heinz Guderian's 2nd Panzer Army holds the areas near Tula, south of Moscow. Field Marshal Fedor von Bock has not yet realized that he is now facing an all-out Soviet counteroffensive.
