Even still, the revolution marked the end of a dynasty that had lasted years and concluded with the seizure of power by a small revolutionary group.
These workers were employed in the mines, factories and workshops of the major cities. They were murdered out of fear that if they remained alive they could serve as a focus of the anti-Bolshevism movement. One of these groups was the Bolshevik party. The government tried to help, but war took precedence.
For the revolution to begin and finally end with a communist power in Russia, there needed to be causes. It generated a new way of thinking about economy, society and the government. One friend was particularly disliked, the unsavory Rasputin.
It was centered on Petrograd now known as St. Later that year, soldiers began returning home to seize some land for their families. His leaving was detrimental. The people wanted to see the end of Kerensky's government, the end to the war and they wanted new land distribution.
Trotsky masterfully executed the revolution.
Governmental corruption and inefficiency were rampant. So says Mao Zedong, late overlord of China, staunch Marxist and hardened revolutionary.
