The French Revolution was also a bit of a civil war, with the peasants fighting against the aristocracy and the church. Although a previous coup attempt the had failed, the time now seemed ripe. The model for the Soviets were workers' councils that had been established in scores of Russian cities during the 1905 Revolution.
Marx thought Germany, highly industrializ … ed by 1900, was ripe for Communism, but it never took hold there. The 1905 seems to have been unplanned, beginning with a mutiny aboard a Black Sea Fleet battleship, and the 1917 was both planned and well coordinated according to Marxist doctrine. The army quickly ran short of rifles and ammunition as well as uniforms and food , and by mid-1915, men were being sent to the front bearing no arms.
