This was done with the use of secret police and the tightening of censorship. Nicholas II shortly took over after his father died from medical reasons. He was generally described as a smart man with great manners however lacked those qualities of a practical man.

When war was declared between germany and russia in August 1914, it seemed that the conflict would save the Romanov throne, not destroy it.

Brendan Forrest 997 683 617 HIS242H1S For: Nimrod Lin April 6th, 2012 Red Victory: How the Whites Lost the Russian Civil War Following the events of the revolutions of 1917, including the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II, Russia was at a point whereby there was an opportunity for a single force to consolidate its power. The Bolsheviks had established the Red Guard in the February revolution – a group of workers as well as deserters of the Imperial army – one that would forcefully seize Petrograd as well as other major Russian cities that had formerly been governed by the now defunct Monarchy. A provisional government had been previously been established and the Russian Constituent Assembly was dissolved by the Bolsheviks, setting the table for the appointment of the Soviets as the new government of Russia. In the middle of these radical changes to the political landscape in Russia, a storm brewed whereby anti-Bolshevik forces sought to effectively put a stop to the rapid and foreign socio-political changes occurring within the state.
