OKH observed bigger than usually withdrawals on all fronts except in the Baltic sector where Soviet units remained static. The rain in most sectors of the front, except Karelia and South of Kharkov, forced a temporary halt to German offensive operations in the Northern and Central sectors, where Bryansk, abandoned by the Red Army, was nonetheless, captured.
In the South, Dnepropetrovsk was also abandoned and taken by the Axis whose troop, spearheaded by Italian mobile corps, continue their push hoping to reach Stalino, and maybe Kharkov, before the winter. Soviet loses are down to only two corps, a cavalry one and a mechanized one. An infantry corps in the marches North of Crimea, whose borders was reached by Romanian infantry, has also little chance of escape.
