Storyboard Text

  • Russia in World War I
  • Well that did not go as planned...
  • The February Revolution, 1917
  • I am leaving this place!
  • Bulshevik Revolution/October Revoltion, 1917
  • Now that we have power over Russia's government, lets eliminate private property and make peace with Germany.
  • Let's do it!
  • Russia was probably the least prepared for World War I. They had few guns and weapons due to their focus on industrialization rather than militarism. Although Russia was a huge nation, they had a poor military and by the first year of the war, Russia lost nearly half of its soldiers (4 million) due to wounds, desertion, or being taken prisoner or killed.
  • Russian Civil War 1918-1919
  • Know with Czar Nicholas II is gone and the white army defeated, no one will be able to stop the Bolsheviks and I! Haha!
  • Czar Nicholas abdicated the throne and the Duma (legislative body) is re-established and is placed in charge of ruling Russia. However, The Duma had no real power though and was unable to rule Russia's large vast territory.
  • Industrialization and Agricultural Reforms of Stalin, 1928
  • Come on! We need to industrialize people! Work harder! I want that Machine finished by noon!
  • This revolution was led by Vladimir Lenin. With the collapse of the Russian Empire under Tsar Nicholas II , Lenin and the Bolsheviks were able to organize and sieze political power in Russia. With the Bolsheviks in charge of the government, they quickly eliminated the ownership of private property and they were also able to make peace with Gernmany
  • Stalin's Purges, 1934
  • If you disagree with me or threaten my power, I will destroy you!
  • This civil war within Russia was between Reds who were loyal to the Bolsheviks (Lenin's government and the government at this time which had a mix of communism and capitalism characteristics) and the Whites who were Czarists and rebelled against the Reds. The Reds killed Czar Nicholas and defeated the white army consolidating power under Lenin and the Bolshevik party.
  • Lenin dies in 1924 and Joseph Stalin takes power. With Stalin in power, he moves toward totalitarianism by creating rapid industrialization with very high and maybe sort of unrealistic demands. Stalin also had state owned farms which were known as collectives replace private ones.
  • Yet another example of Joseph Stalin's moves toward totalitarianism is that he would kill the government of all that are opposede to him or who threaten his power.
