With the recent deaths of North Korean despot Kim Jong-il and Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, take a look back at some of the men whose iron grips on their countries regrettably shaped the 20th and 21st centuries.
Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party, referred to as the Nazi Party. Hitler's inhuman foreign and domestic policies eventually led to the outbreak of WWII. Hitler committed suicide in 1945 during the final days of the war to avoid capture by the Soviet Red Army in Berlin.

Kim II-Sung

He ruled the nation with autocratic power and established himself as the country's "Eternal President," in the constitution. He died in office in 1994 and was succeeded by his son, Kim Jong-il.
