Tojo Hideki - (Japan)

Tojo Hideki, a career Japanese officer, served as both Prime Minister for Japan as well as Army Minister. The Japanese successes in the Pacific early in the war made him extremely popular, but as the tide turned against Japan, he lost favor and was forced to resign in 1944. After the war, he attempted to commit suicide but failed. He was then tried as a war criminal for Japanese atrocities and hanged in 1948.
