I studied the Russian Revolution for GCSE history. It's a mark of how superficially you learn things at that age that I still learned a lot from this VSI.

Chapter 1: From February to October
Chapter 2: Civil war and the foundation of the Bolshevik regime
Chapter 3: War communism
Chapter 4: NEP: politics and the economy
Chapter 5: NEP: society and culture
