 ::The Battle for Moscow::
Hitler had ordered that units in other parts of the Russian campaign be moved to Moscow - General Hoepner's IV Panzer group had been moved from Leningrad - hence why the Germans did not have sufficient men to launch an attack on the city and why it had to be besieged.
By doing so, they slowed down their advance to Moscow to such an extent that the Red Army was given sufficient breathing space to reorganise itself and its defences under the command of Marshall Georgy Zhukov - the man who 'never lost a battle'.
Moscow itself had been turned into a fortress with 422 miles of anti-tank ditches being dug, 812 miles of barbed wire entanglements and some 30,000 firing points.

 Powell's Books - Moscow 1941: A City and Its People at War by Rodric Braithwaite
The 1941 Battle of Moscow — unquestionably one of the most decisive battles of the Second World War — marked the first strategic defeat of the German armed forces in their seemingly unstoppable march across Europe.
Moscow boss Alexander Shcherbakov, for example, may have been Stalin's man, but he was also a tireless administrator who apparently killed himself trying to hold the city together.
Moscow 1941 is one of the best books written on the subject of the Eastern Front in the Second World War, and indeed I think this book is one of the best accounts of people at war period.
