Please read my answer on the link below. Hitler started the war to gain European lands for his own rule and to gain their oil and other Natural Resources. Germany did not have any oil wells. He also wanted to create a pure Aryan race in all of Europe. So he killed off the Jews. (now read my previous answer that will fill you in on more about Hitler)

Hitler did not purposefully start a war however he knew that he would cause one because he kept on invading other countries and breaking the terms of the Treaty of Versailles.
