The Battles of Rzhev (Russian: Ржевская битва) were a series of Soviet operations in World War II between January 8, 1942 and March 31, 1943. Due to the high losses suffered by both sides, the campaign became known by veterans and historians as the "Rzhev Meat Grinder" ("Ржевская мясорубка"). The operations took place in the general area of Rzhev, Sychyovka (later known as Sychevka) in Sychyovsky District, and Vyazma against German forces.
