One hundred years ago, on March 8, 1917, Russia underwent it's first of two revolutions, the February Revolution and followed by the Bolshevik Revolution. These revolutions would eventually set the stage for the formation of the Soviet Union. Learn more about the story of the Russian Revolution and its long-term effects on both the country itself and the world at large. Follow the path of government corruption, economic deflation and food shortages that led the Russian people to rise up in the February Revolution. This uprising led to Czar Nicholas II abdicating the throne and ending centuries of imperial rule. A few months later, Bolsheviks led by Vladimir Lenin took power from the provisional government that had been set up after the February Revolution in what is referred to as the Bolshevik Revolution. These two revolutions are collectively known as the Russian Revolution. Discover how, after the Bolsheviks took power, Russia broke out into civil war as the communist Bolsheviks and the anti-Bolshevik White Russians began to clash. This war led to the brutal murder of Czar Nicholas and his family, as well as the popular rumor that one of Nicholas's daughters, Anastasia, had actually escaped execution. Take a closer look at this turbulent time in Russian history and its impact on world history. Our books include full color and black and white images, index, glossary, CIP, reading websites, bibliography, detailed table of contents, sidebars, historical timeline, historical context overview, Dewey number and reading levels by Lexile and F&P Leveled reading.
