    Chamberlain for sure. If Britain had shown some backbone to Germany - I am convinced the Holocaust would have either never happened or it would have been a much smaller number of dead people.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    While I agree fully, I will admit to voting Chamberlain to provoke discussion, and clearly Stalin was the most evil sonofabitch to walk Europe in the Twentieth Century.

As I said, it would have led to Hitler's political demise....and in Germany in the 1930's that would have meant Hitler's death.

    Chamberlain made sure that England HAD to re-arm because he failed to stop the problem earlier and cheaper. His dithering was just as effective in treating the problem as the woman who waits six years to see the doctor after she found a lump in her breast.

    See a problem? Fix it now. They never fix themselves.
    1 "We" is "Us" not you
    2 Again this is based on the assumption that we had the capacity to "fix it" we didn't until we rearmed. Had we started fighting earlier we would have lost.

    Mussolini has to be it. He led his country into multiple loosing wars. He led his country into utter ruin, he was hanged but at least the trains ran on time. i think that sums up his qualifications.

    Re: Worst European Leader in Twentieth Century

    Didn't more people die as a result of Stalin's policies then the amount of people that died in the Holocaust, and WWII? Given that many of the people who died in WWII were because of Stalin's policies...

    Mussolini. His level of incompetence was unmatched among other European leaders at the time. Sure Chamberlain made mistakes, but that is only with the benefit of hindsight. Mussolini was simply a showboating moron who managed to screw up pretty much everything he did.

    From a pure leadership perspective (regardless of policy or philosophy) it was Chamberlain.

    Neville Chamberlain, because he actually trusted Hitler.

    Hitler was actually a good leader and a warped human being, just a crappy general.
