what account who was a more successful dictator: hitler or stalin
Since the twentieth century, there have been a lot of comparisons between Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. Notably, both of these dictators are known for their pitiless behaviour. As a result of an unparalleled level of authoritarianism, propaganda and endeavours to manipulate the citizens, these two dictators both possessed outright power. Each of these tyrants was compelled by innovative, debatable and exploitative ideologies about the supposed structure of the society and the world power. While Hitler and Stalin share some clear similarities, their personalities, the efficacy of governance and certain regimes were justifiably different. This essay with the use of dominant quantifiers of power such as style of leadership, propaganda, and the establishment of fundamental economic policies will argue that Hitler’s agenda was more successful. Stalin might have accomplished instilling a higher level of terror on the citizens; but it was also the cause of his inability to retain an efficient method of ruling. Finally, it would be concluded by linking a concrete analysis of Hitler’s dictatorship with scholars of World History to prove the main argument that Hitler’s embodied a more proficient and productive dictator rather than Stalin. It is necessary to note that this essay is not in its entirety stating that Hitler was infallible or a botch, but only assessing Hitler based on the different aspects of a successful leadership he implemented, during his supremacy in the Third Reich which led to the conclusion of him being a more successful dictator when compared to Stalin and his achievements.

Activists of the structuralist school such as Martin Broszat and Hans Mommsen have mainly paid attention on interpreting the systemization of German by the Nazis and the leadership capabilities of Hitler
