I'm partial to Mark Solonin's theory that the defeats of 1941 are attributable to mass desertion and unwillingness to fight. According to Solonin, the vast majority of the new, world-beating T-34 and KV tanks were abandoned without firing a shot, and most of the aircraft losses were due to planes being left intact on the airfields by deserting airmen.
