Here's a taster:

The battle for the USSR
By the summer of 1940, Hitler's attention was being drawn
away from Britain, and towards the Soviet Union.
Despite signing the Nazi-Soviet Pact in 1939, Hitler had
always intended to invade the USSR to gain more
`lebensraum' (living space). According to Nazi racial
doctrine, the USSR was populated by `inferior' Russians,
Eastern Europeans and Jews, so Germany had every right
to take their land for the Aryans.
Besides, Hitler had always hated Communism, and
Russia had vast oil reserves that Germany could exploit.
