Four men invited him to dinner to poison him, but it didn't work, so they shot him and assumed he was dead. He ran off and they shot him more and finally tied him up and threw his body in the Neva River while he was still alive.

Lenin wanted to overthrow the temporary government as soon as he got back from exile but not many people were on his side. Soon after they started failing in the was and many people started agreeing with him and their slogan was "Land, Peace, Bread". He soon stared taking over and quickly the temporary government backed down and he was able to give the people what he promised. This was the second revolution and hardly any shots were fired.
The communist wanted total power so Lenin ordered secret police to arrest and execute any person that was jeopardizing his power. when people were arrested they were in harsh conditions and often died. Lenin killed over 300,000 people, including czar and his family because he thought for the revolution was going to survive is if the Bolshevik was in control.
Lenin stared war communism which meant that all private businesses and industries. The workers who knew what it meant went on strike but peasant were forced to produce crops for the army. Lenin Red Army was sent to retrieve the crops from the peasants and the unhappy peasants revolted against him.
