Summary of the Book 'A Talk on Cadet Eating':

The February Revolution of 1917 in Russia was the first stage of the Russian Revolution of 1917. Largely a bloodless transfer of power from the Tsar the regime that came into being was an alliance between liberals and socialists who wanted to instigate political reform create a democratically elected executive and constituent assembly. In the first half of February lack of food supply caused riots in the capital Petrograd. On February 18 the major plant of Petrograd Putilov Plant announced a strike the strikers were fired and some shops closed which caused unrest at other plants. On February 23 a series of meetings and rallies were held on the occasion of the International Womens Day which gradually turned into economic and political ones. They continued during the following days. At one point a large battalion of soldiers was sent to the city to quell the uprising but many deserted or even shot their officers and joined the revolt instead. This led Tsar Nicholas II to abdicate the throne on March 2. The Provisional Government that replaced the Tsar was initially led by a liberal aristocrat Prince Georgy Yevgenyevich Lvov. After his government failed he was succeeded by socialist Alexander Kerensky a Menshevik. On March 1 1917 the Petrograd Soviet of Workers and Soldiers Deputies issued Order No. 1 which ordered the military to obey its orders rather than those of the Provisional Government. Pressure from the right such as those behind the Kornilov Affair from the left mainly the Bolsheviks and pressure from the Allies to continue the war against Germany put the government under increasing strain.
