Moscow defenses, December 1941

It looks cold and it was.  Many days during December 1941, the temperature dropped to -40c.  This is close to the spot where the Germans penetrated farthest into the Moscow defenses, about 40km north of the Kremlin.  There are several of these tank obstacles marking the spot on the ring road, just east of the road to the airport.
