This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the History of Russia - World War I & the Revolution. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The beginning of 1917 saw troops in the Russian ranks expressing many of the same complaints offered by the French later that year. In the rear, the Russian economy had reached a full war footing, but the boom that resulted brought about rapid inflation and led to the break down of the economy and infrastructure.
As food supplies in Petrograd dwindled, unrest increased leading to mass demonstrations and a revolt by the Tsar's Guards. At his headquarters in Mogilev, Tsar Nicholas II was initially unconcerned by events in the capital.
Beginning on March 8, the February Revolution (Russia still used the Julian calendar) saw the rise of a Provisional Government in Petrograd. Ultimately maneuvered into attempting a coup, he was removed after its failure. With Kornilov's defeat, Kerensky and the Provisional Government effectively lost their power as Lenin and the Bolsheviks were in the ascent.
On November 7, the October Revolution began which saw the Bolsheviks seize power. Taking control, Lenin formed a new government and immediately called for a three-month armistice.
The presentation covers the following:
Bolsheviks Gain Power
German Terms Accepted
Treaty of Brest-Litovsk
