I deleted Kiev 1941 since I have no idea why it would be included in this list.

The Soviet side certainly lost a lot of men and materiel but they made that up by 1942 so it wasn't a German strategic victory, just a tactical one.

The Germans were sidetracked from their push on Moscow but it's rather unclear if just jumping off from Smolensk in August would have resulted in the Germans eventually taking Moscow, and getting utterly destroyed as the Red Army was is hard to characterize as any sort of 'victory' in any case. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:17, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
