He managed single handed to defeat Germans, Italian and Croatian nazis and Serbian kings army. Hitler said if he had 5 generals like Tito was that he would rule the World. Later he refused USA and Russia offers to join them and if they persist he will fight them as well. USA and Russia never dared to invade country of 10 million people at that time.
The biggest one.
-Defeated Hitler's armies in the Balkans (Tito's partisans initiated the first liberations of occupied territory in WW2, starting with Montenegro's capital Podgorica and the Serbian town of Užice in early-mid 1941)
-Created and upheld one of the greatest systems of education and social security in history
-Made a self-sufficient socialist market economy with high-quality (globally recognized) cadres and products (YUGO as a car is the absolute winner of competitiveness in the US)
-Created an army which could absolutely not be defeated by any means of conventional warfare, probably had nukes too (either way through skilled diplomacy had the backing of both NATO and the Warsaw Pact in case the other would attack SFRY)
-Almost completed the communist dream (plan failed after he died due to mismanagement and greedy successors)
-Protected the interests of his people, Yugoslavia's passport in 1975 was the absolute winner of black-market pricing, on par with those of the UK ...more
Can anyone explain how he was a revolutionary?
violence freed india not his retarded peace
He's surely the greatest of our lifetimes.
A pretty damn ballsy revolutionary, since he was going up against the Peronist party
A lso, a badass, because here are his last words before he died
"I know you are here to kill me. Shoot, you are only going to kill a man" basically saying that you may have killed me, but the things iv'e done will never die
You know he was a psychotic mass murderer, right?
Didn't take a lot of "courage," slaughtering unarmed people.
And just what was it you think "he stood for? "
Or do you just think and speak in mindless platitudes?
I love Che Guevara for what he stood for and the courage he had
He is the hero
He did do quite a lot for Russia, but here's the major flaw.

Those estimations are according to anticommunist propaganda.First official census in China was done in 1975.

He took down Batista who was a mass murderer. He was a man who promoted liberty and did so for his people. As some of us already know, Anti-communist propaganda ruined his image for some people.
List of good things he's done:
- Took down Batista and exiled him. Notice how Fidel's arch nemesis was exiled, not brutally tortured nor murdered. Do you still believe that he tortured his own people to death when he spared his own enemy?
- Set up a communist government for the benefit of the Cuban people. What counted was the intention. He did so because he thought that communism can restore balance between everyone living within Cuba. Although it came with its disadvantages such as strict control over businesses, it gave the country an amazing health system, a reduction of illiteracy, and went against racism.
- He defended his country from the USA. In 1961, under the order of JFK, the Bay of Pigs Invasion was set into motion. Fidel became communist and that's the only ...more
Fidel Castro liberated Cuba from Batista's rule. He did what he thought was right for his country and has done way more than what most leaders did for their countries.
Most inspired revolutioner of the 20th century

He still lives in our hearts Shaheed never dies
