During the Russia revolution the Czar became hugely unpopular. That many of the Russian workers were protesting and many soldiers disobey their commanders. During this period Russia was with war against Germany. Knowing the Revolution was going on the Germans got Lenin and return him into Russia hoping he could take Russia out of the war. Lenin was a strong leader and knew how to handle the crowds of people. He and the Bolsheviks fought against the whites army. He promise bread and peace which many Russian supported. He gain the trust of the people as Lenin said he would make the workers get control of the government. Once he got the leadership of Russia he rename the country as the Soviet Union.
