Russian Civil War 1919-21
There were two sides to the Russian Civil War. The first being the "Red's" who were the Bolsheviks, and the second being the "White's" These were all the groups who opposed the Bolsheviks. White's mainly consisted off Tsarists officers, Cossack's, Bourgeoisie, Outlawed political groups, and the rest of the international community. Early on in the war the "White's" won a view victories, but the tides turned very quickly due to the military genius of Leon Trotsky. The "Red's" were much more organised and central. The allie's did not truly oppose a large threat because they were only trying half as hard as they could have. The "Red's" also controlled the industry and had the majority of the population. The Lower class people were genreally "Red", the middle and upper class where "White", and the peasants were all neutral.
