The assassination of Austrian Archduke Ferdinand was the immediate cause of World War I. He was killed by a Serbian terrorist, which caused Austria to declare war on Serbia. Serbia was allied with Russia, who intervened, causing Germany to declare war on Russia, which caused France to declare war on Germany.
Russia declared war on Austria-Hungary to support their ally Serbia. This forced Germany to declare war on Russia to support their ally Austria-Hungary.
Declaring war on the USA after Japan declared war on America. Germany declared war on America hoping Japan would declare war on Russia. Since Japan did not declare war on Russia (Russia would later declare war on Japan), Germany did not have to declare on America. If Germany had not declared war on the USA, America would have difficulty in declaring war on Germany (although USA and Germany naval vessels in the North Atlantic were shooting at one another in 1941). If Germany had not declared war on the USA, then Hitler would not have had to face the military men and equipment of America. Although Russia fought the majority of land battles against Germany, it was American men and equipment that helped Russia and Britain and other Allied nations to defeat Germany.
France was allied to Russia in a pact. When Russia declared war on Germany and Austria-Hungary, France followed suit.
Germany did not declare war on Britain. Britain declared war on Germany to protect Belgium.
Hitler wanted Russia's resouces like oil and to make slaves of the Russians and take their land

It didn't. Germany started invading other countries which made France and the UK declare war on Germany.
After Germany declared war on Russia to help Austria-Hungary (who was attacked by Russia after they attacked Serbia), France made clear their intent to stand by their ally (Russia, obviously), so Germany declared war on them, too, planning to take them out then go after Russia to prevent a two-front war. Unluckily for Germany, Russia prepared pretty quickly so Germany had to send troops to the Eastern Front as well and fight a two-front war.
Everyone got all annoyed, and worked up. Then Germany decided to declare war on Russia.
They didn't. Germany tried to invade Russia but were repelled.
In World War 2 Germany had already defeated France when they declared war on Russia. At the time that Germany invaded Russia, Britain was the only major power at war with Germany and Britain didn't have the resources to mount an attack against mainland Europe. Germany was unable to attack England across the channel so Hitler decided to divert his attention to Russia before Stalin made his military forces any stronger.
When Germany invaded Poland in 1939.
Well Germany and Russia were allies from 1939-1941
Russia was not an ally of Germany in World War 1.
Quite the opposite, the US did not declare war on Germany, but Germany declared war on them. They did this to honor their alliance with Japan after the Pearl Harbor attacks.
