On June 22, 1941, Germany launched its invasion of the Soviet Union codenamed "Operation Barbarossa"--the largest military operation in history and opening the Eastern Front of WWII.  The ultimate death toll in that theatre of the war includes over 26 million civilians and soldiers.

How might history have been different if Germany had embarked on a different strategy to achieve the resources, particularly oil, that was a driving factor in the decision to launch the offensive?  Was a clash between Germany and the Soviet Union inevitable or avoidable?
