Best Answer

Stalin killed the most people, and it made little difference to him what ethnic or religious background they had. He was paranoid and was determined to purge everyone he perceived as being an enemy of his. Mussolini and Hitler were racists and egocentrics in their own right.

Stalin may have killed alot of people but, Hitler tried to wipe out the entire jewish race. He killed more than 5 million jewish people and even tried to take over the entire world. When Hitler invaded russia during WWII, Stalin made it clear that he would take the fight back to the fatherland and end the attempt of nazi ruling.

Stalin was still very ruthless and cruel though. Evil is also a matter of perspective.

Why did Stalin join the allies?

Adolph Hitler made a nonaggression act with Stalin. So Stalin and Hitler became partners in crime, taking over more and more territory. Hitler felt threatened by the rate at which Stalin was attaining land, so he tries to invade the u.s.s.r. He doesn't succeed. What an epic FAILURE! So Stalin then joins the Allied Forces at the begginning of WWII.

Why does Hitler get focused on more by historians than Mussolini and Stalin?

Hitler gets the nod because he started the most horrific and tragic war in history. He also tried to kill a race. Mussolini was his stooge, but he did not carry out a scorched earth policy like Hitler, nor did his troops show barbarity as Hitler's did. Hitler indoctrinated his troops with a hatred for the Jews and Slavs. His war was one of extermination not just of conquering. It was the first time a war was started with the intent to destroy an entire people. Mussolini is looked at more as a stooge. Stalin on the other hand was an ally, although a reluctant one, as he did not begin his war against Germany until he was attacked in June of 1941. Had Stalin wound up fighting with Hitler against the West he would have been seen in a much more critical light. As it is, Stalin is recognized as one of the worst human beings of all time. His liquidation of his Marshalls, Generals, Colonels and others led to horrific defeats by Russia in the first few months of the war. His show-trials of the 30's where millions were systematically illiminated to consolidate his power is now looked on as some of the worst crimes in history.

How many deaths is Hitler responsible for?

Not nearly as many as Stalin was responsible for, but Stalin was 'our friend and ally' so we don't talk about it.
