Trope: small-time guy from the sticks makes good, becomes great leader
This came to me while attending a panel here at ICON with Glen Cook:
Small-town kid from repressed respectable but impoverished background in the sticks has a cold and controlling father, leaves home to serve his nation, fights bravely but suffers in The War against The Enemy, goes to the Big City, becomes a charismatic leader and unites his People in a new empire with himself as beloved, charismatic leader against the secret evil cabal which seeks to destroy his Nation.
Fantasy novel, or life of Adolph Hitler?
