There is no doubt that Germany is considered to have started

WWII by invading the countries around it. Hitler saw that the

Germany needed to make itself a powerful nation again, something

they had lost when the treaty of WWI was signed. He built up his

army and military equipment, attacked parts of Europe that he

thought belonged to Germany in order to get it back, and then

attacked other countries when he saw that no one in Europe was

going to oppose him. Some may say that Japan started the war

because of the earlier invasion of China and Russia, but others say

that if that had been the only war, it would never have turned into

a World War. Russia defeated the Japanese and would have come to

the aid of the chinese. Any more discussion becomes very complex

and detailed.
