I assume this question refers to the Second World War. Well, of course, when the war started I don't think it was necessarily expected to become a world war. Certainly, Nazi Germany aimed to be in control of events and expected the invasion of Poland to be just one of a series of small wars against its immediate neighbours. However, Britain and France declared war on Germany which ensured the war would not be short or as local as Hitler had planned or hoped for. All wars are intended to be as short as possible while still achieving the war aims of the combatants.
