Could the Axis have won the Eastern Front? Yes, but...

...first, sack Franz Halder for refusing to obey Hitler's directives to focus on the Ukraine and Caucasus, which would have given Germany the resources she NEEDED to continue the war, nevermind winning it.



Second, promise the inhabitants of the SU that they would gain their own state(s) if they help (whether this promise is kept is irrelevant).



Third, ignore Leningrad and Moscow, with the latter being taken only after #1 had been executed.



Fourth, bypass Stalingrad and instead go further south, bonus if you manage to encircle it.



Fifth, absolutely get the Japanese to attack in the Far East, don't need extravagant offensives, only hold Vladivostok, North Sakhalin, other surrounding territories and wait, if nothing happens, push forwards. Peace out the Chinese if possible, with a return to Status Quo Ante Bellum, promising CKS that Japan would help unify China under his banner, and even withdrawl from China (whether kept is irrelevant) if he goes against SU.



If that happens, have the Chinese occupy Mongolia, and threaten (but not execute) an offensive to the Urals (lol!).



Sixth, promise the Soviet leaders that if they surrender, they will live (whether this is kept is irrelevant).



Seventh, have Manstein be in charge of pretty much everything.


Eighth, peace out the Brits with the condition that Europe will return to a Status Quo Ante Bellum. If they refuse, make them seem like the war mongers they are. If possible, convince them to attack the SU.


Ninth, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMB, BOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB the Soviet factories ASAP!



Tenth, modify production of the Tiger-1 so to make it less costly, but less performant, akin to the Soviet T-34.




Finally, Nuke the SU if you have nukes.

Or alternatively, just play HOI4.
