Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Russian Revolution, Part III
16-20 July 1917: The July Days—Soldiers & workers in Petrograd demanded "All Power to the Soviets," splitting the Provisional Government: the Bolsheviks & Anarchists in support, the Socialist Revolutionaries (S.R.) & Mensheviks in opposition; troops recalled from the front restored order; an S.R., Kerensky, became Prime Minister; Trotsky, et al. were arrested, but Lenin escaped to Finland.

Lest we forget.
