    Well it is because you need to be evaluative and not descriptive. You do need some description I got told though as long as you then analyse this.

    Have you said how military conflicts such as the Ruso-Japanese war caused public outrage at people beaten by 'an inferior race' and this was a short term event in the lead up to the 1905 revolution?

    What about how the two world wars changed Russia. Both are very important in bringing about change.

    You need to consider economic reasons, so things like the Five Year Plans, Collectivistion, Witte's polices and Stolypin's reforms.

    There is loads you could talk about easily and you just need to link and evaluate if it was to do with the wars.

    For example, the 5YP's were partially aimed at building up arms. This had changed as the Communists wanted to show the world that Communism could work and to protect themselves from foreign powers who were anti-communist.

    I'm not sure if it fits within the timeframe but the emancipation of the serfs was also a big change for russia during the rule of Alexander II

    thats a huge timescale for an essay, is it coursework?
    Everything that has been stated above should be thrown in, its what i would add.

    But don't use wikipedia, my lecturer screams if she finds out any of us have used wikipedia, its so rubbish for knowledge for A levels onwards.
    I'd get out of that mind set before you get to degree level or you'll struggle, spartacus.com is a good site to use. I don't remember if it has much on russia but it has many quotes which is always a good thing to add to an essay, and also historians are good to throw in
    Hope the essay writing is going or went well
