They wanted to gain more land.

at first the Germans wanted to build an railway to the east through the balkans - who were a very poor area of Europe. Germany was part of the central powers, there was also Austria-hungry; they wanted to stop Serbia from stirring up the slavic people, then there was Russia who was a allied power, and was also a salvic country, and they wanted access from the black sea controlled by Turkish empire. and then there was Italy who wanted to control the other side of the Atlantic sea.

then the Germans wanted land in Paris in 1915, this was when they used the schlieffen plan and wanted to fight France and russia.

Both world wars had Germany on one side and Britain, France, the United States, Russia, and China on the other. Differences include the fact that the Russia of World War I was the imperial Russian Empire while the Russia of World War II was the communist Soviet Union. Countries that changed sides include Turkey (for Germany in World War I, neutral in World War II), the Austro-Hungarian Empire (for Germany in World War I, no longer existed by the time of World War II), Italy (against Germany in World War I, for Germany in World War II), and Japan (against Germany in World War I, for Germany in World War II).

Germany was in WW I and WW II.

Japan was not allied with Germany in World War 1. That was world war 2.

In World War 1 and the 20 or so years before 1914 some Germans wanted Germany to acquire the status of a 'world power'. This had different meanings for different people. What led Germany to 'want to dominate the world' was the most extreme variety of German nationalism, Nazism. This wish wasn't, in itself, a result of World War 1.

Germany and Japan were on the same side in World War II.In World War I Japan was on the Allied side and fought against Germany.
