It was hoped that by capturing Moscow this would end the war in the East. On paper the Germans it would seem had far more men and equipment on hand to accomplish this against that the Soviets had to defend with. However like many areas of warfare this initial assessment would not help them. Marshal Zhukov had now begun to get more reinforcements and supplies. The Germans on the other had were now at the end of a long supply line. The Russians were also prepared to fight to death to defend their capital something the Germans may have under estimated.
