What was General Pinochet like as a person?

Apr 2015
Obviously no one on this forum knew him personally, but from books, articles, documentaries, what do we know about this dictator as an individual? How does he compare to other dictators of history?

Is the implication that there's room for discussion, interest in or research into Pinochet's personal life? Are you trying to tell me that besides his politics and actions as head of state, there's anything worthwhile to discuss? No, sorry, no room for nuance here. ;-)

An interesting question actually. I'm interested in hearing some answers from folks. I came across a poster/meme a while back that I thought was funny. While maybe not pertinent, I appreciated it, I thought others might too.
