Our defenses are holding. No major new encirclements. The north has begun a sideshow and our slow retreat continues. In the center, the Axis advance has slowed further. First panzercorp, fresh from the conquest of Leningrad, began making an apearance, but only with Totenkompf. These troops are fresh and rested, but I think 821 made a mistake, he should have inserted the entire corps all at once, to maximize shock. Instead I have a chance to throw them back across the river, and bolster reserve front's defenses. To the south of Moscow, third panzercorps has begun its attack in the corridor between Tula and the Oka.
In the south the most troublesome situation has arisen. A panzer division is adjacent to Stalino, but there's 16 armament points that I need to evacuate from the city. I have to retreat that division, come what may.
In other news, the readiness of the Soviet army has slowly improved. Less than a third of divisions are unready, for the first time in the war. We also had more holds than routs, again for the first time in the war. German armour strength jumped by 400 tanks this week, so I assume some new panzer divisions have arrived.
