You and your group are trying to convince the other groups on the class that the dictator you have studied from the inter-war period (between the Great War and World War II) is, in fact, the best (or worst) dictator of all time.

Introduction

Congratulations!  You have been selected to be a member of the committee to select the Best (or Worst) Dictator of the Year.  We have certainly lined up an impressive list of some of the most powerful men of the 1920s and 1930s.  You and your fellow judges will be responsible for doing research into many of the men involved in making their countries some of the most powerful in the world, and made themselves the most powerful men in the world at the same time.  How they did those things are what you are interested in.  Your job to select the best (or worst) dictator of the 1920s and 1930s is a difficult one, but on awards night will be well worth your effort.
