The Bolshevik Revolution
By February of 1917, riots broke out in St. Petersburg and the garrison there mutinied.
The Provisional government was established in an attempt to restore order in the capital.
The Provisional Government set up by the Duma attempted to pursue a moderate policy by returning order and restoring worker's rights. The most important demand was to end the war.
For the next three years the country was devastated by civil disputes, until by 1920 the Bolsheviks had finally emerged victorious.
