Most of us subscribe to the notion that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, but if this is the case, how did individuals such as Benito Mussolini, Francisco Franco and Idi Amin get to positions of such complete authority? Is it charm and charisma, contacts or political vision that propel these men to such positions? Throughout history dictators have tended to treat their people as little more than pawns in a grand chess game, to be played with and, if necessary, disposed of at will, but is it possible to be a benevolent dictator, whose decisions actually benefit the people, rather than those at the top? Here are incredible life stories of dictators such as Pol Pot, Adolf Hitler and Fidel Castro to answer the following questions: what kind of family upbringing, personal qualities and life events come together to form a dictator? Are they born or made? How does one who wants to serve his nation become a self-serving monster, and what happens when one fearsome dictator comes face to face with another?
