    The course of world history has often been set by powerful individuals who had an insatiable hunger for power, wealth, fame, and glory. In many cases, these villains have ruled countries and empires with violence and oppression—inflicting their ideals on innocent people.

    History's Villains takes a two-sided look at some of history's most influential villains; the series explores simultaneously the influences and experiences that shaped the future, but does so in the context of the time. What emerges is a unique story about a world that changed a person and a person that changed the world.

    Inside- Francisco Pizarro

    Titles include:

    Joseph Stalin

    Under the leadership of Joseph Stalin, the Soviet Union was transformed from a relatively backward nation into the second most important industrial nation in the world. For these achievements, however, the Soviet people paid a high price: the loss of millions of lives, massive material and spiritual deprivation, political repression, and an authoritarian system of rule.


    Francisco Pizarro

    Francisco Pizarro conquered the Inca Empire, consisting of 4 million people, with only 200 men and 60 horses. With a combination of trickery, treachery, and brutality, he then went on to plunder the Inca's riches and exploit the people for his own gain.
