The Russian campaign decided the war with Germany, so why did they lose it. One big cause Hitler's decision to pull all the German spies out of the Soviet Union. That decision led to the Nazi invading a country with more tanks and much better ones: in terms of speed; armor and guns. It's impossible to do a Blitzkrieg when the other army has faster tanks, with more range and better penetration. Because of that reality the Nazi were forced to fight essentially trench warfare at Stalingrad and Moscow and when they failed they had to fight a defensive war for the rest of the war.

If Hitler had not pulled out Germany's spies the Mark III and Mark IV would have been fitted with heavier guns to start with. It also did not help that the early Tiger tanks that were meant to be the weapons of decision at Stalingrad and Moscow did not have machine guns- making them very vulnerable to infantry. If the Nazi had prepared better that would have won the initial invasion and captured Soviet oil fields and industry and crippled even the ability of the Soviets to raise more manpower. The Soviet union was essentially another bungled beer hall punsch. Hitler's conceit and foolhardiness doomed the third reich
