What were the various reasons why the Russian people wanted to overthrow Tsar Nicholas II?

How did the provisional government differ from the Duma?  Why did the Petrograd Soviet also emerge?

What was Army Order #1? How might this have contributed to the fall of the provisional government?

How do the Bolsheviks prevail in overthrowing the provisional government?  What are the various ways the Bolsheviks work to maintain power?

How and why does Lenin end Russia's involvement in WWI so quickly?

What are the reasons why the Bolsheviks were successful in the Russian Civil War?  Why weren't the Allies successfully able to help the "Whites"?
