Russian Revolution and Civil War: Crash Course European History #35

World War I was very hard on the Russian Empire. So hard, in fact, that it led to the end of the Russian Empire.

As the global conflict ground on, Tsar Nicholas II faced increasing unrest at home.

Today we’ll learn about the Revolutions of 1917, the rise of Lenin, Trotsky, and the Bolsheviks, and the Russian Civil War and the creation of the Soviet Union. 

Note from Among the Fray: Now that we have finished World History, we will be watching Crash Course’s European History series. An episode – in chronological order of course – will be posted with the morning news everyday. Enjoy!
