Has anyone done this question? If so, can you tell me how to answer it
Historians disagree about the causes of the October Revolution in 1917. What is your view, with the reference to three chosen texts?
Haven’t done this exact question but have studied the October Revolution. You could tackle the question from two different viewpoints- one viewpoint could be from a right wing perspective mentioning failures of the Kaiser and failed October reforms. He failed to preserve the autocratic state which is why there was a revolution. Link in Kiel Mutiny. Other perspective would be from a left wing perspective- the SPD were the largest party and had lots of support for a revolution. Essentially the argument would be along the lines of either the right wing or left wing being the main cause for the Revolution. Hope this helps- A level history student :smile:
