The article looks at debates within the historical profession over the extent to which German policies of expansionism during and immediately before the Second World War were planned in advance by Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. According to the author, Hitler's policies were neither wholly opportunistic nor wholly premeditated. Particular focus is given to evidence from Hitler's book "Mein Kampf" and from a memorandum written by his staff officer Friedrich Hossbach.
