"Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo"

Adolf Hitler (1889-1945), was chancellor and dictator of Nazi Germany; Benito Mussolini (1883-1945), was prime minister and dictator of fascist Italy; and Hideki Tojo (1884-1948), was prime minister of Japan during the Second World War. They represent the three Axis Powers of the Second World War: Germany, Italy, and Japan. Thus, Yossarian reasons that “they were all out to kill him.”
