The aim of Vyazma-Bryansk strategic defensive operation conducted in October 1941 was to prevent the seizure of Moscow and its industry region on the run, attrit the shock troops of the enemy in the battles at the approaches to Moscow, ensure the strategic reserves advancing and organizing the strong defence. Despite some dramatic moments of the battle, the Red Army managed to stop Wermacht's formations at the distant approaches to Moscow, which enabled the troops to be deployed in the rear to new defensive objectives. Eventually German attempts to capture the ancient Russian capital were whittled down with this objectives.
