Fighting in Moscow went on for several months (from 30 September 1941 to 20 April 1942) and consisted of two stages: defense and counterattack. The first phase included several major battles in the Western direction (the Orel-Bryansk, Vyazma, Mozhaisk-Maloyaroslavets, Kalinin, Tula, and other operations), during which Soviet troops failed to keep the enemy at a long distance (200-300 km) and Wehrmacht troops were dangerously close to the capital. The loss of Soviet troops in the first stage was huge (about half a million people), the Germans lost only about 40 thousand. When in the course of exploration, it became clear that Japan was not going to attack to capture Moscow, the far East came large reinforcements, which made it possible for several operations (the largest - the Rzhev-Vyazemskaya) to push back the German positions to the West. The loss of Soviet troops in the offensive were as huge as in the first stage, but the German army suffered no less damage. The morale of the Soviet soldiers after these events has increased significantly.
