Turning point 3: Kornilov Revolt
The Kornilov Revolt in August was full of fortune for the scattered Bolsheviks as Trotsky was released from prison and was given the credit for protecting Petrograd with his newly formed
Red Guard.

Bolsheviks now well-armed.

The Red Guard (formed from 40 000 radical workers), were credited with saving Petrograd from certain military defeat by a tsarist general.
Turning point 4: Growth in political support
Demoralisation of the army after the June Offensive multiplied the number of Bolshevik groups within the army. Forty-four groups in July increased to 108 by September.

Bolshevik popularity increased by reputation as defenders of Petrograd after the Kornilov Revolt.


By September, the Bolshevik Party holds a majority in both the Petrograd and Moscow Soviets.
