Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Part of the History's Turning Points series, which explores pivotal moments in world history, History's Turning Points: The Russian Revolution profiles Lenin and Kerensky, two angry men determined to take down the czar. Relentless revolutionaries, the bold rebels had experienced similar backgrounds. Lenin would not stop until the rich Russians were the poorest people in the land. In the end, he proved himself the one capable of shifting an entire country upside down. The program uses on-location dramatizations to tell the story.
