Although facts and dates are well known concerning the Second World War Historians are still debating today who or what caused the outbreak of it The main figure receiving the blame is Adolf Hitler who with no doubt played an important role during and before the War But can he be entirely blamed to have started the war There are many other factors as to what could have started the war such as the appeasement Britain and France presented Germany was also devastated by the harsh terms of the Versailles Treaty this caused Hitler to want justice for his country Was he to blame for the War Hitler was a very aggressive figure before and during the Second World War His nationalism drove him to do anything for an improved Germany He aimed to expand Germanys lebensraum the space in which Germans lived There were thousands of German speaking Germans in Austria and Czechoslovakia and he claimed they should belong to Germany The embarrassing defeat of the First World War made Hitler want to experience glory and victory and he was willing to fight for it Many historians believe that Hitler intended a major war from the beginning he hated communism and wanted to destroy Russia To do so he had to invade through Poland and destroy it here by staying neutral with Russia Historians such as Hugh Trevor-Roper believed this theory If this theory were correct then the war was inevitable as Hitler would have had his plan of action from the start His invasion on Austria was understandable since there were millions of Germans being withheld from their own country His invasion on Czechoslovakia is debatable though since the space he invaded contained over 1 million non-Germans Finally Hitler crossed the line by invading Poland on 1 September 1939 again to gain lebensraum This aggressive offensive move caused Britain and France to react which was completely necessary Without Hitlers invasions the other countries
