The Great War
This week in Russia, Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin was almost killed by sharpshooters in Petrograd and the Constituent Assembly meets. Tensions rise as Russia issues an ultimatum to Romania, with an order for their King’s arrest. There are also machinations in Finland and some action on the Western Front.

Dmitry Shcherbachev was a Russian general not Romanian*

I still regretting that criminal ulianov wasn't killed !!! because of him I lived 38 years in bolshevism!!!

Shame they missed. Communists no matter who they are or when they live deserve death and only death.
Jarod Farrant
What if Lenin actually died? Who would have takin over Russia next?
Spiritof SeventySixer
There is no such thing as a “democratic socialist,” as the Marxist socialists always walk away from representative institutions when they cannot get their way and turn to violent, evil, despotism to impose the so-called “will of the proletariat.”
Haugeranville
Can you get the city names right next time? It's Thionville not Thienville.
Quillain Sheehan-fisher
I Lenin ever gonna die?
gnarshread
As much of a reputation as Russian snipers have you thought they would have done a better job.
Blank Anaximander
I would love to watch a review of the Kaiserreich mod from Hearts of Iron 4.To sum it up it stems from the idea of what if the German Empire won World War one?
Amitabha Kusari
So that's the great Lenin, The Ideal Guy, communists won't shut up about. The Guy who took only the lives of bad upper classes. A triple traitor to his own country, an anarchist and a German backed terrorist. All for the revolution. And what would it all accomplish? If the Tsar had surrendered to the Germans, could he not have developed Russia just as much or many times better? Without the bloodshed.
Adrian Magdalina
The picture at 5:06 is out of context. There it presents Carol II of Romania witch had nothing to deal with the first world war, but rather with the second world war
Dito Kakushadze
1:22 გაუმარჯოს მესამე...
Стефан Петковић
Next time, attempt an assassination by someone who actually doesn't know to shoot. From principle.
ItzIridium
If Lenin had being killed the world would be massively changed thenceforth in comparison to our world.
