The Russian Revolution was an uprising in Russia during World War I in 1917. The RomanovTsar was assassinated, his line was wiped out. A civil war followed between Red (Communist) and White forces, and in the end, despite extensive support for the Whites from a number of Western nations, the Communists defeated all their rivals, consolidated power, and formed the Soviet Union in 1922.
The Russian Revolution was a rebellion against the monarchy and Tsar Nicholas II of Russia which began in 1917, during the Great War. An alliance of various anti-Tsarist forces, led primarily by Socialists and supported by the Central Powers, effectively forced Russia to withdraw from the Great War. Nearly a decade of civil war followed, from which Nicholas and his supporters emerged victorious in 1926.
Russia experienced a revolution in 1916, two years after its defeat at the hands of Germany in the Great War. Germany, fearing the consequences within its own borders if the Russian Tsar fell, helped put the revolution down very quickly.
In 1929, FeldwebelAdolf Hitler of the German Feldgendarmerie told his niece Geli Raubal that the Tsar "was and is a woolly headed fool of a Russian" for not hanging more revolutionaries in 1905 when a similar rebellion had been attempted.
