The paper reveals that the most important effect of the First World War was the Russian state that changed from a tsarist ruled political entity to the Soviet Union. The paper assesses the impact the Bolshevik revolution had on the evolution of Russian history and considers the historical background of this event, the main forces acting inside and outside the country, and the elements that transformed the revolution into a turning point for Russian history and for European and universal history as well. The paper shows how it was a sum of factors which made the idea of revolution appealing to the lower parts of the society and gave rise to the USSR.
From the Paper:"There are certain events in the history of the world that had a defining impact on the way in which events developed and in which the world evolved to what is today or society. One such event was the First World War which marked a turning point in the way in which history and international politics would be later conducted. This event had such an array of effects that determined changes all across the world, but in particular in the countries that had been the leading actors of the conflict. These included Russia, Germany, France, Great Britain, and even the United States."
