Jaan Anvelt's Uprising in Tallinn[edit]

Original quote: "On 5 November [O.S. 23 October] 1917, Bolshevik leader Jaan Anvelt led his leftist revolutionaries in an uprising in Tallinn, the capital of the Autonomous Governorate of Estonia.[citation needed]"

I found a source (https://books.google.com.au/books?id=Ef2cAAAAQBAJ&pg=PA24&lpg=PA24&dq=Tallinn+jaan+anvelt&source=bl&ots=B6Z6hWXNIh&sig=SLR6xFrt3vj7jBDcC9yCrp3npFo&hl=en&sa=X&ei=Wz47VeSxGpOD8gX_8oCADw&ved=0CEAQ6AEwBg#v=onepage&q=Tallinn%20jaan%20anvelt&f=false) which extends the date of Jaan Anvelt's uprising to December 8. It also contends that it was a puppet government of the Russian Council of People's Commissars. Tayzhian (talk) 07:40, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Kronstadt sailors[edit]

I do not think enough emphasis is put on the role of the kronstadt sailors before the attack with the cutting off of petrograd by destruction of bridges and telephone lines Sorry, do not have the time to sort this out myself but can someone please address this issue

Historiography - revisionist view?[edit]

The Historiography section of this article states that "The historiography of the Revolution generally divides into three camps: the Soviet-Marxist view, the Western-Totalitarian view, and the Revisionist view." The first two views are described in subsections but the third view is omitted as far as I can tell. Shouldn't there be a subsection for the revisionist view? 24.130.189.187 (talk) 09:09, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Oh hey, I see someone has already commented on this above. 24.130.189.187 (talk) 09:10, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

"Peaceful demonstrations"[edit]

Wikipedia's on article on the July days contradicts the description of the demonstrations as peaceful saying "The Bolsheviks intended to hold peaceful demonstrations. However, armed clashes broke out." Have edited the article accordingly. --Russell's teapot (talk) 19:17, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
