Fall of Tsar and Rise of Communism
Transcript of Fall of Tsar and Rise of Communism
Ernest, Cyrus, Bevis Who is the Tsar? Name for the ruler up to 1914 Nicholas II (Ruled from 1894-1917)
He was the last Tsar of Russia Communism A political way of thinking,base on holding all property in common. How WW1 weaken the Tsar? places that are still a communism country Outbreak of war Military Failures The tsar's role The Tsarina and Rasputin Poor living conditions Failures to reform As in all other European countries the declaration of war was greeted enthusiastically in Russia.
Most people were united by patriotism and the tsar's popularity rose.
The only group to oppose the war were the tiny Bolshevik Party. The huge Russian army fought bravely but suffered many defeats at the hands of the Germans.
Russian soldiers were badly equipped (often lacked guns and ammunition) and poorly led by their aristocratic officers. Nicholas decided to take control of the armed forces and made himself Commander-in-Chief in 1915.
Consequently, he was held personally responsible for further defeats. The war led to severe shortage of food and fuel in the cities, leading to increased prices.
Many factories shut down due to a lack of raw materials, causing unemployment.
Refugees from areas close to fighting made the already overcrowded cities worse. The tsar's absence led to his wife gaining a greater degree of power.
She relied fon the monk Rasputin, who could control her only son's haemophilia.
Rumours spread about their relationship and a string of poor decisions discredited the monarchy. Members of the Russian parliament (the Duma) joined together to form the Progresive Bloc.
They demanded to be allowed to form a government in order to improve the war effort.
Nicholas refused. How the Tsar fall? The Rise of Communism How Does Communism WW1 Affect In Conclusion... World War 1 began very positively for Russia. The Russian population united and the loyalty to the Tsar increased.
The Russian army lacked effective leadership and modern wapons. This caused the Russian army doing very bad in the war.
It were the mounting military defeats, people publicly complaining about political decisions, the food shortage, rising prices and fuel shortage that in the end caused the Russian Revolution, and made Russia a communistic land. - No WW1, No Communism
- Many country became communism, like Russia - After WW1 the communism start to rise, reason
-the affet from Karl Marx
-the world war one
-the fall of Tsar Thanks!!! Russia was heading in only one direction in 1914, because the nature of Tsarism would have prevented any sort of recovery even if total war had not occurred. World War One shattered Tsarism, but could only do so because Tsarism itself was so brittle.
