What if you learned your father was a tyrant, a megalomaniac, a mass murderer? Jay Nordlinger’s new book surveys 20 of the most horrific dictators and investigates what kind of lives their offspring have made for themselves. Some were loyalists who admired their father. Some actually succeeded them as dictators. A few were critics, even defectors.
