Bolshevik Party The Russian Communist Party. It seized power in a revolution in October 1917. Central Powers First World War alliance of Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire. 46 The USA entered the war on the side of the Allies in April 1917 as a result of Germany’s submarine warfare, which increasingly targeted US vessels, and the discovery of evidence that Germany was encouraging Mexico to invade the USA. The impact of US troops and supplies was an enormous boost to the exhausted Allies.

They condemned a war in which ordinary working men were sent by their rulers to fight other workers. In Bolshevik eyes, the workers of the world should instead be united in struggle against their ruling oppressors. Germany and its allies agreed to an armistice but not without imposing punitive peace terms in the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk of 3 March 1918. Thereafter, Russia withdrew from the war. KEY T ERM Armistice An agreement to stop fighting. 6 million km2 of territory including Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Finland and Ukraine 75 per cent of its iron ore and 90 per cent of its coal almost half its industry 55 million people almost half of its best agricultural land.

49 The collapse of Germany and its allies The German armistice came shortly after the collapse of its allies, who had all already made armistice agreements: l Bulgaria on 29 September 1918 Ottoman Empire on 30 October 1918 l Austria-Hungary on 3 November 1918. l The collapse of the Central Powers was in large part brought about by their inability to sustain conflict any longer. Their combined reserves of manpower and supplies were by 1918 far inferior to those of the Allies, making continued military conflict, let alone the likelihood of victory, impossible.
