Season 1  |  Episode 3  |  The History Channel  |  November 19, 2016

Mao Zedong was Supreme Leader of China for almost three decades. His merciless policies made him one of the most ruthless tyrants of the 20th Century. He was a sadist intoxicated by others' pain; a dictator convinced that politics had to be violent; and a man who presided over the deaths of possibly more people than Hitler and Stalin combined. This is the story of a brutal autocrat, through his reign of cruelty and revenge, to a position of authority so great, his personality cult remains to this day.
