Deadly Leaders of the 20th Century
|Irony is not always appreciated nor understood. Some of my acquaintances had looked at this image and assumed that I am an admirer of these 20th Century monsters. Far from it!
However, since many now admire Napoleon Bonaparte as a strong leader, I wonder how future generations will view the three major dictators of the past century? Will they find excuses for their horrific crimes against humanity? Has the process of sanitising their reputations already begun?
It cannot be denied that each of them was regarded in their own lifetimes as 'great leaders' by many of the people they ruled; and all three still have their ardent supporters today.
