Indeed. To clarify my Original Question was not "What would have happened if Barbarossa kicked off in 1942?" or even "What would have been the strength's and weaknesses of the combatants in 1942?"; but rather "What was so pressing that the Germans couldn't have waited until 1942?" or if you prefer "Why give the go ahead in 1941 if the designated start date was missed?"Lots of 'probably's and 'ifs' in that theory. At any rate, actual history notwithstanding, this sounds like the makings of an alt-history miniseries for Amazon.
We're wandering off into another question here. A good question worthy of it's own thread, but not the question at hand.
