Stalin, Hitler, and the Invasion of Russia

The German attack on the Soviet Union in 1941 marked a turning point in the Second World War. The massive German assault that brought the Soviet Union into the war inflicted devastating losses on the Red Army and threatened the nation's very existence. Why the Soviets seemed to lack any prior knowledge about the impending invasion is a question that has remained unanswered. With the most elaborate set of intelligence services and an extremely suspicious worldview, how did they fail to detect forces amassing on their border and to prepare for one of the most aggressive moves in military history?
