You can't analyse the 1917 Bolshevik leaders like ordinary politicians. Ordinary politicians just work within the system to gain power. Not Lenin. Lenin was an extraordinary politician, from the beginning he DID work within the soviets system to gain power. After spitting on the soviets, he quickly...

Charles wrote:so you are saying any document or fact which does not support your theory is a lie or propaganda?

No: Every document from bolsheviks, supporting or not my sayings, are not reliables.
Everybody should do as they didn't exist, or read them just for the laugh.

Good analysis. The Social Democratic Party who had great influence in the workers class supported the War engagement of the Imperial Government. Because of this the socialist wing of the SPD splitted away and formed the USPD - the Independant Social Democratic Party. After the Armistice the USPD pro...

the archives of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1903 to 1991, which was secret until 1991, and was also microfilmed and moved to the west, all 25,000,000 pages of it. this contains correspondence between Communist Party leaders in 1917-24+ and is probably the best source for what they ...

What is clear though is that at that time, official Russian Communist Party policy was to help bring about a Soviet Republic in Germany. "official" is the word. They did not help the ongoing german revolution. Bolsheviks never wanted to help any soviet, they want them to control them (then they no ...

I was looking at the wiki entry for the failed revolution in Germany 1918-19 I can't vouch for its accuracy, but did not see any obvious errors. This revolution started in 1917 during the war (when deserters came back home to remove the empire), and its very end was in 1921 at the last slaughter in...

Cooperatives without state should be the latest stages of "Utopia" :) , according to Marx. It wasn't possible in under developed Russia. Maybe Ukraine was more developed than Russia, as real federated soviets were possible, in the freed makhnovist area. They managed the common life and met to solve...

It's easy to forget that Russia had their own home grown ideologes, namely Bakunin and Kropotkin. Both were more Anarcho Socialists but they inspired things like the first attempts at Communes in St.Petersburg. There are those who can give more detaile explanation. Yes: "No power above the soviet",...

Even today the revolution is largely blamed on the jews by eg. Latvians etc. Yes, that's why: No reds nor whites. Nevertheless, without Bolsheviks there would have been no Nazis in power and thus the history would have looked drastically different anyway. With your logic you can even say without th...

note that there would never have been any white "pogromes" with no bolshevik revolution. There were already pogroms before the revolution, and it didn't change with the war as the Whites were always known as the bigger killers of jewish (until the nazi). EDIT: Sorry I'm wrong here, as Whites were n...

A white victory would have changed everything that happened in the 20th century. They should have both lost. No Red gulags nor White pogroms. "Democracies" helped the Whites only to forbid the Reds. There should have been a war between allied democracies and the huge russian monarchy once the White...

I was wondering how certain "groups" would be handled in the game. For example the Czech Legion could help or hinder either side as they marched east. Nestor Makhno's Anarchist's drove the "White" General Deniken crazy by disrupting his supply lines and he also had no love for the "Reds", and vario...

- Surprisingly, the fronts didn't freeze up like in the ww1. - Cavalry still played an important role, that was completely neglected at the beginning by the Reds, until they lost enough battles to recognise it as a necessity. - Trains and railroad transports were of the utmost importance, and were ...
