Project Summary

Historical account of World War I, that takes into account all portions of Russian society through the prism of a war whose prospects ranged from moderately grim (in the fall of 1914) to utterly hopeless (by the fall of 1917). A class study that combines foreign and domestic policies of the three government forms (Tsarist, Provisional, and Bolshevik) during the time period. Treats the period as a continuum.
