and Benito Mussolini
Adolf Hitler is considered one
of the most brutal dictators in history. After purging possible rivals
for leadership, Hitler rearmed Germany into a modern war machine. He and
Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, both Fascists, became allies in 1936.
They went to Germany in 1937. Adolf Hitler was one of the
most powerful dictators of the 20th century. His attempts to conquer
territory for German Lebensraum (living space) brought about World War
II (1939-1945). He attacked many Jews, Sinti and Roma (Gypsies),
Slavic people, and others in the name of racial purification.
