There are many horrible dictators around the world that make innocent people suffer by tourchering them or killing a loved one for them just being a certain nationallity that they don't like, that they don't worship a certain god, or just because. The 5 most cruel dictators in my oppinion are Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Ladden, and Binito Mussolini. Despite Adolft Hitler becoming Germanys Dicator, he was born in Braunau am Inn, Austria on April 20, 1889. He was the leader of the Nazi Party from 1920 to 1921 and Fuehrer of Germany in 1933 to 1945. In 1913 Hilter moved to Munich. He was screened to join the Austrian military in February 1914 but was classified as unfit because he lacked physical activity. As soon as WW1 broke out he volunteered for the German army and served throughout war for 4 years but went blind in October 1916 due to a gas attack and was hospitalized. He was always in the front line as a headquaters runner which led to him being awarded with two Iron Crosses for his bravery. When he was released from the hospital, it was then that the end of WW1 was announced. Hitler was furious that Germany had surrendered and felt as if Germany had been stabbed in the back by its leaders. The cause of Hitlers attitude towards Germanys surrender, he entered politics. In 1919, he came the 55th member of a antisemitic party called the German Worker's Party. He became the party's leader and established the party's symbol which became a bold red background with a white circle and a swastika in the middle of that circle. In 1920 the party's name was changed to Nazi. Over the next serveral years, Hitler gaved public talks and it gained him the attention he wants and the financial support he needed. In November 1923, he made an attempt to take over the German government. His plan failed and he was sentenced to 5 years in prison. While in prison he wrote the book "Mein Kampf" (My Stuggle). Only 9 months in prison, he was released and determinted to building the Nazi Party to take over the German government. In 1932 he was granted German citizenship and in 1933 he was made chancellor. He used this high-ranking position to gain power over Germany and it happened when Paul Von Hindenburg, Germany's president died in 1934. In 1933
