3Adolph HitlerAdolph Hitler would lead Germany into the most disastrous defeat suffered by any nation in history. Responsible for the deaths of over 60 million souls Adolph Hitler must be considered one of the greatest blights on humanity. His dream of a thousand year Reich would end after only 12 short, miserable years.
4Benito Mussolini Il Duce Mussolini ruled Italy with an iron fist. Seeking to return Italy to the former glory of the Roman Empire he only managed to involve it in global conflict. Mussolini allied himself with Germany only after it seemed that Germany would win the early rounds of WWII. A brash bully and a pompous "show dictator " he would, in the end, be hunted down by Italian partisans and hung upside down like a side of beef.
5Hideki TojoHideki Tojo, known as the "Japanese Warlord Tojo" was a passionate supporter of Nazi Germany and believed in pre-emptive strikes against China, Russia, and the United States. Tojo became the prime minister of Japan, the minister of war, home minister, foreign minister and whatever else struck his fancy. His dreams of a pan-Asian empire headed by Japan would abruptly end at the end of a hangman's noose in 1948.
