Vladimir the Bold defeated Tokhtamysh near Volokolamsk in 1383. Soon thereafter, it reverted to Novgorod. The town remained the southernmost enclave of the Novgorod Republic until 1398, when Vasily I (Vasily I of Moscow) definitively incorporated it into the Grand Duchy of Moscow. Ten years later, it was granted for two

operating against Vytautas. Lacking any military talent, he failed to win a single battle and, on hearing about the invasion of Edigu, fled to Lithuania, pillaging Serpukhov on his way. The Russian historian A. Lobin tried to calculate the size of the Russian army at Orsha based on the mobilisation capacities of the towns which had to send townspeople for military services. Лобин А.

Studia Slavica et Balcanica Petropolitana 2009 Nr 1-2. pp.45-78 It is known that except for Boyar sons of the sovereign's regiment there were people of 14 towns: Novgorod, Pskov, Velikie Luki, Kostroma, Murom, Borovsk, Tver, Volok (Volokolamsk), Roslavl, Vyazma, Pereyaslavl (Pereslavl-Zalessky), Kolomna, Yaroslavl and Starodub. Лобин А. Н. К вопросу о численности вооружённых сил Российского государства в XVI в. Studia Slavica et Balcanica Petropolitana 2009 Nr. 1-2. pp. 63-64 Based on the data of the well-documented Polotsk campaign of 1563 the author gives following numbers: 400–500 Tatars, 200 boyar sons of the sovereign's regiment, 3,000 Novgorodian and Pskovians, and about 3,600 representatives of other towns, altogether about 7,200 noblemen. Complemented with servants the overall number of the Russian army could be 13,000-15,000 men. Considering the losses during the campaign, the abandonment of service which is documented in the sources and the number of soldiers left as garrison in Smolensk the number of Russian troops present at Orsha could be about 12,000 men. In 1523, a Josephinian (Josephinians) hegumen from Volokolamsk named Daniel (Daniel, Metropolitan of Moscow) was elected metropolitan. Soon after this, the church commenced prosecution of the opposition. When Zhukov took over on 10 October, the Soviet Reserve Front had just been disbanded and its forces incorporated into Western Front, but given the pounding that Soviet forces had suffered, the force numbered only 90,000 men.

Govorov had 5th Army (5th Army (Soviet Union)), recently raised from 1st Guards Rifle Corps, and soon to include the Soviet 32nd Rifle Division at Mozhaisk. The 43rd Army was under General K.D. Golubev at Maloyaroslavets, and the 49th Army (49th Army (Soviet Union)) was near Kaluga under General I.G. Zakharin. 49th Army had been formed in August 1941 and initially assigned to Reserve Front. On 1 September 1941 49th Army comprised 194th, 220th, and 248th Rifle Divisions, and 4th Division of People's Militia (Narodnoe Opolcheniye). http: www.tashv.nm.ru BoevojSostavSA 1941 19410901.html Meanwhile 33rd Army (33rd Army (Soviet Union)) was forming at Naro-Fominsk under General Lieutenant M.G.

In 1676 Petro Doroshenko asked new Russian Tsar Feodor III (Feodor III of Russia) to forgive him and promised his loyalty.

eventually Volokolamsk entered Moscow Principality and lost its own significance becoming a small manufacturing town. Currently it is famous by several centuries old landmarks in the center of the town, and a couple of glorious sights in it's vicinity. Get in By train Suburban trains reach Volokolamsk from Rizhskiy train station (trains at 9:31 and 18:24 start from Rzhevskaya station and pass Rishskiy train station, Dmitrovskaya and Tushino stations can be more convenient to change
Krasnogorsk) and more packed with cars and turns. Volokolamsk can be reached by M9 from the west, mind the extremely poor state of the road between Shahovskaya and Velikie Luki though. An alternate route through M1 and then R90 might be better.

Both estates suffered greatly in 1941 from fashists, but while Goncharovs estate was restored and is now a resort house for Moscow Aviation Institute (access to territory is free), Chernyshovs estate still mostly remains in state of disrepair, which only deepens impression it gives, because the sight is still great even in spite. Buses 28 and 963 from Volokolamsk to "Yaropolets-1" stop, by car use R108 (north exit from town), then to the left on R107. * Teryaevo is a site of a glorious '''Joseph-Volotsky Orthodox Monastery'''. Founded in 1479, it has several churches and monastery walls preserved from 16-17th centuries, surviving both church demolitions of Soviet period and fashist occupation. The site certainly worth visiting if you have time. From Volokolamsk go by buses 23 or 31, both take almost an hour. By car use R108, then to the right on R107. * Rzhev is about 100 km further west by M9, there are two Moscow trains in the evening and one suburb train in the morning in that direction. Mind the poor state of highway in the Tver Oblast.
all except Tula by 14 October. Encouraged by this initial success, the Germans conducted a frontal assault against the fortified line, taking Mozhaisk and Maloyaroslavets on 18 October, Naro-Fominsk on 21 October, and Volokolamsk on 27 October, after intense fighting. Because of the increasing danger of flanking attacks, Zhukov was forced to fall back and withdraw his forces east of the Nara River. ref
Zhukov, tome 2, p. 24. Final pincer On 15 November 1941, German tank armies began their offensive towards Klin, where no Soviet reserves were available because of Stalin's wish to attempt a counteroffensive at Volokolamsk, which had forced the relocation of all available reserves forces further south. Initial German attacks split the front in two, separating the 16th Army from the 30th. Several days of intense combat followed
