The Tsar could not see the unbelievably clear needs of his people, industrial development was at low, weapons and vital minerals were in short supply, workers began to strike, the average wage of a worker during 1917 would not have been enough to feed one mouth let alone a family. The land on which the peasants worked, was not shared out they began to up rise and kill the nobles and aristocrats, he could not give concessions, he wasn’t listening to the Duma he was self centred and ignorant. The people of Russia were beginning to see that other countries without monarchs were much further ahead in modern times, and they were becoming a third world country. The USA and France were undergoing huge economic development and industrial revolutions, and they were under a Republic rule, which as every mess caused by the Tsar, a republic became more and more desirable. Eventually the Tsar was no longer affective, all respect towards him was lost, and the people were loosing patience, the Russian armies were suffering huge losses in the war and worst of all, the Tsar had decided to take all control of his forces so he became responsible for all defeats and every mans death.
It had failed to modernize, this was to do with the tsars lack of effort for reforms. The country was undergoing tremendous hardships as industrial and agricultural output dropped. Famine and poor morale could be found in all aspects of Russian life. Furthermore, the tsar committed a fatal mistake when he appointed himself supreme commander of the armed forces because he was responsible for the armies constant string of defeats. While the tsar was off defending the country, a strange 'monk' named Rasputin made his way into governmental affairs.
The people of Russia were simply disillusioned from all the casualties and injuries. This event marked Bloody Sunday, the day the Tsar and his people became even more distant. Workers set up work councils that were mostly influenced by revolutionary ideas. When Germany declared war on Russia it only made conditions worse for the people. Industries that supplied the war thrived and those that didn’t failed, people wanted the war to end.
Although he could do anything, he had his problems. He was an inadequate military leader and did nothing to help the growing peasant population. He even admitted that he “knew absolutely nothing about matters of state” (Kort 25). In 1904 he sent Russia to war with Japan. Russia suffered over 400,000 casualties.
Also, the response of D-Day contributed to their loss because many German officers were concerned about the war and affected their confidence. In conclusion, when Germany lost on D-Day, they started to lose every battle as well. D-Day was the reason why the Germans starting to fall in power. Despite their efforts, they could not win battles against the three power formations because they were too weak by then. Eventually, the three formation defeated Germany and put an end to the Nazi power.
A small working and middle class began to rise to help industrialize Russia. But a corrupt government made it difficult for Russia to advance. This added to the turmoil. World War I placed a serious hurt on Russia. Although at first it raised national pride and enthusiasm, it quickly drained resources and poorly trained peasants quickly found themselves fighting with no weapons.
In 1915 Nicholas decided that he would personally lead the Russian army but it was a large mistake as the ill-prepared Russian army was no match for the Germans. While he was at this war he put his wife in watch the affairs of the empire; but the public viewed her untrustworthy due to her German origin as well as her heavy reliance on Rasputin. Even though the heavy pleas from officials and the public the Romanovs ignored all pleas. Eventually conservatives murdered Rasputin those conservatives were known as heroes. This is often known as the start the public hate for the Romanovs.
This would have made the nobles unhappy and the peasants and workers who took up the vast ... ... middle of paper ... ... workers as they were still being paid. Because of the war the Duma was dissolved in 1915 which meant that the people would have no say in what was going the happen in the war. Becaus Nicholas took over the army he was solely to blame for the massive defeats. While he was on the front his wife was under the influence of Rasputin, to which nobody liked. The war alienated the government from its supporters.
