Operation Typhoon, during which the Nazis intended to take Moscow, failed due to problems with the logistics of the Wehrmacht. Florian Stark expressed this opinion in an article for the German edition of Die Welt.
The author claims that the lack of fuel and ammunition greatly delayed the advance of the troops, which allowed the Red Army to gather forces and drive the invaders away from the capital. According to him, this is the main reason for the failure of the offensive.
Another reason, as noted by & nbsp; Stark, was & nbsp; rains, which turned the roads into “ mud rivers of meter depth. ''
