Description

"The Russian Revolution of 1917 may be said to have begun in November of the preceding year, when the government came under intense assault from liberal and conservative Duma deputies for its conduct of the war. The leader of the liberals, Paul Miliukov, virtually accused the government of treason. These attacks emanating from the highest political circles made the country ungovernable; the conviction spread that drastic change had to come" (R. Pipes, Communism, London 2001, p.34).

Kerensky had become Russia's nominal dictator after the abdication of the Tsar in April 1917. After losing the support of the army he released Bolshevik agitators from prison in the hope of preventing a military coup; but Lenin seized power for the Bolsheviks instead.
