The events of this series begin with more exciting and diverse documentaries. It is a detailed factual view of the story of six tyrants, from Mussolini to Saddam Hussein to other dictators who changed the course of the twentieth century. Events begin where they reveal the power seized by tyrants and people who were against them day by day. It is a series of questions and answers that detail each revealing picture of brutality and power.
It's an absorbing, richly documented work. If the series has a flaw, it's the frequency of the academic commentaries -- messages that expend a good deal of time in emphatic explanations of the obvious.
