Abstract

Leon Trotsky's communist leadership was partially responsible for bringing about the October Revolution of 1917, after which Russia exited the First World War. Starting as an activist, he became People’s Commissar for Foreign Affairs and People’s Commissar for War in the first Soviet government. Trotsky's commitment to international revolution clashed with Joseph Stalin’s theory of socialism for his country. He used his journalistic experiences on the front to inform his eventual leadership of the Red Army.
