1. Russian civilians dig anti-tank ditches and warm themselves from the frigid cold with a bonfire anticipating a full-scale German invasion of the Soviet capital during the Battle of Moscow. The battle took place from 2 October 1941 until 7 January 1942. The Soviet defensive effort frustrated the German’s attack on Mocow and Soviet strategic counter-offensive and smaller-scale offensive operations were executed and pushed the German armies back to the positions around the cities of Oryol, Vyazma and Vitebsk, nearly surrounding three German armies in the process. Moscow, Central Federal District, Russia, Soviet Union. 15 November 1941. Image taken by Aleksandr Ustinov.
