The October Revolution was a revolution in Russia led by the Bolshevik Party of Vladimir Lenin. It followed and capitalized on the February Revolution of the same year, which overthrew the Tsarist autocracy and resulted in a provisional government.
As the October Revolution was not universally recognized, there followed the struggles of the Russian Civil War (1917–22) and the creation of the Soviet Union in 1922. The Bolsheviks would become the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Stalin was one of the militairy leaders of the Bolsheviks and took control over the Soviet Union after Lenin’s death in 1924.
