We’ve covered the young presidents of USA already, but let’s broaden the scope now and take a rare glimpse at the leaders from around the world before they became the almighty God-like figures.

It’s utterly strange to see these people, who shaped the world we live in now, as simple teenagers with all the innocence in the world and, in most cases, cluelessness about what the future is holding for them.

If you think about it, what he accomplished is actually quite fascinating. How more or less one man could brainwash an entire nation. Not condoning it or anything. But this part of German history is interesting.

Joe Holliday

No, he had a longer mustache when he was younger. In his mid twenties, he shaves it down to the Chaplin style mustache because he couldn't form a proper seal on a gas mask (military requirement) with his longer mustache.
