What do you mean ''the purpose''?,
In the simplest answer i can possibly put this, the major 'event' that triggered world war 1 was the assassination Archduke Franz Ferdinand at Sarajevo on 28 June 1914.
(Man on the right)
After WW1 ended in 1918, The Allies (Mainly France) imposed debts on Germany for 'causing the war' that were horrific. It involved Germany paying stupid amounts of money (Which were so massive, Germany only finished paying them in 2010, 92 years after the war) and France also occupied a part of Germany called ''The Rhineland'' (The bit of Germany next to France) Which was where almost all German industry was, and France basically seized it.
So, This meant German people had no jobs, no money and no food, and couldnt pay back the debt, let alone have a decent life (6 Million people were unemployed and Germany experienced some of the worst hyper inflation in history, money literally became so useless kids were playing with them like lego's, and people used money as wallpaper)
So, Needless to say, The German people were MASSIVELY pissed off they were being punished so harshly for a war they didn't even want, This led to extreme actions needing to be taken, And, Adolph Hitler was an extreme guy who wanted to shit on the 'Treaty Of Versailes' (The document that was causing all these problems).
So, Adolph Hitler got into power, He Re-occupied the Rhineland again, Lowered unemployment, Put the nation back to work, Fed his people (You know, Hitler was actually a very very very good politician).
Hitler then claimed Austria (Which became part of Germany) and also west Czechslovakia (The ''Sudentenland'') and the allies did nothing about it.
Then, September 1 1939, The Germans invaded Poland, And the British and France, (Not wanting to look weak) stepped in and basically said ''Dont worry france, We will help you!'', Then france got fucking steamrolled by Germany, Then France got Steamrolled in just 5 weeks, Then there you have it, WW2 has begun.
