Detailed description

Tula for Moscow defensive operation, which lasted 43 days began October 24, 1941. Tula was one of the main goals of the German operations in the capture of Moscow.

The main aim of the operation of German troops "Typhoon" was not achieved: the resistance of Soviet troops is not broken, and the capital is not captured. Despite the difficult situation at the front, and the evacuation of most of the Tula enterprises in eastern regions of the country, the defense industry has continued to operate.
