That's what I was thinking. Maybe they missed that part. Or maybe most students these days just don't know what "benevolent" means. ...Which would be sad, but not as sad as if people thought Hitler was actually a benevolent leader.

Tomorrow's assignment: define the word "benevolent." Even to his own people, you could call him a powerful leader, an efficient leader, but benevolent would be pushing it.

31 there are PLENTY of great leaders to pick from in lots of different eras and cultures, which would have made an interesting topic had everyone not jumped onto the Hitler bandwagon-- it wasn't even in the parameters because I'm sure that this wasn't OP's idea of benevolent, no matter what you might think. So I feel for you, OP, there was a great diversity in leaders and a great oppurtunity to be creative, from anything like Shoguns, Kings, Mayors, Presidents to seemingly-average people or otherwise.

No matter how terrible this sounds, I don't see how this is an FML. Hitler truly was the greatest leader of all time. While all of his actions were just awful unspeakable things, he single handedly almost wiped out a race, while fighting a war and leading a Hitler youth. I would imagine their paper to be in the same general gist, but I don't see how this is an FML. I hope people understand.

What we can take from the beginning of human history up until about the 90's is that war has always lead to technological advancements. The second World War is no exception to this. Nuclear fission, infrastructural improvements, radio and radar were all strongly influenced by the need to find implementations that would make them beneficial in war. Those implementations also allowed an easy application outside of battle. Another example, although not credited to the second World War itself, were placebos, who's major uprise happened due to war times.
