The October Revolution/Bolshevik Revolution

● The October Revolution overturned the interim provisional government and established the Soviet Union. 

● The Bolsheviks, who led this coup, prepared their coup in only six-months. 

● By October 1917, the Bolsheviks’ popular base was much larger, they built up a majority of support within petrogard and other urban centres. 

● After October Revolution, the Bolsheviks faced major opposition from Russia and for many different reasons. 

● The result was the Russian Civil War, which would be horrifically painful for the country and that, in the end, would cost even more lives than World War I.
