Nope. Assault of Seelow was another huge blow to Soviet invaders. Though Soviet prevailed in the end, the delay and the casualty of Soviet armies was considerable, espeically in the condition the German armies had to endure at that time.

ALTHOUGH SEELOW WAS EXPENSIVE IT WAS NOT A GERMAN VICTORY. FOR STALIN IT SEEMS THAT ANY COST WAS ACCEPTIBLE AS LONG AS THE SOVIET UNION WON.

--In the grand strategic sense, the most important battle of WW2 was Pearl Harbor.
--Why? Because the US had--before mobilization--nearly half the industrial capacity of the entire planet at the time, and Pearl Harbor brought the US totally into the war bent on absolute revenge in the form of total victory.
--That guaranteed that in the end the Axis powers were going to lose, because WW2 was a war of machines and machines were a product of industrial capacity.

I think it would have to be the Battle of Britain. If Britian had fallen in line with France, there would have been nothing to stop Germany in Europe and Italy in Africa. Italy would have likely broken through to the Suez and into the middle east, taking the valuable oil supplies. Without having to send help to the Italians in Africa, Germany would have had extra troops and supplies for invasion of the Soviet Union, and the Soviet Union may have very well fallen. Without Britain's help, the United States may have given into Japan, and the world would have settled into a very uneasy peace.
Had this day been wanting, the world had never seen the last stage of perfection to which human nature is capable of attaining.

George Washington - March 15, 1783
