What was Hitler's true ambition in conquering other nations?
I think I understand the basics of WWII but what was Hitler intending to accomplish by attempting to conquer so much territory? Denmark? France? Russia? Was he truly attempting to bring those countries under the German flag? On a practical level what precedent if any was there of one country being able to conquer so much territory and govern so many unwilling citizens?
