  • So I guess i'll...catch you later then!
  • STOP!! The Duma says STOP!!
  • Bolshevik Revolution/October Revolution, 1917
  • You mean I can still run my farm?
  • Yes I do, thank Lenin for that!
  • YAY!!! FREEDOM!!
  • At the time of WWI, Russia was lacking in their military development, focusing on industrialization rather than militarism. Not being able to keep its offensive against Germany, Russia lost almost 15% of the their population.
  • Russian Civil War 1918-1919
  • Yeah, I'm done for it.
  • WE HAVE WON!!!!!! Surrender Czarist!
  • As workers begin to riot, they were able to organize and reform causing Czar Nicolas to abdicate the throne and the Duma to be re-established (although they held no real power)
  • Industrial & Agricultural Reforms of Stalin, 1928
  • I'm sorry, you are? I work for the government, how about you?
  • With Vladimir Lenin leading them, the Bolsheviks rose and took power in Russia. These people were able to make peace with Germany and also eliminated private property.
  • Stalin's purges, 1934
  • Why can't they just play along with him?
  • The Reds who were loyal to the Bolsheviks, while the Whites were Czarists. The Reds won the battle ensuring Lenin and the Bolshevik party.
  • When Lenin died, Joseph Stalin took power and moved towards Totalitarianism. One of the things included in this change was that state owned farms replace private ones.
  • This included him purging all the officials who opposed him.
  • I will never agree with him!
