Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov more popularly known as Lenin is arguably the greatest leader in Russian and Soviet Union History Lenin inspired and led the Bolshevik Communist Revolution of 1917 and was the architect and first head of the recently dismantled United Soviet Socialist Republic I would also argue that the Bolshevik Revolution is the most significant political event of the 20th century and Lenin must for good or ill be regarded as the centurys most significant political leader Not only in the scholarly circles of the former Soviet Union but even among many non-Communist scholars he has been regarded as both the greatest revolutionary leader and revolutionary statesman in history as well as the greatest revolutionary thinker since Marx Lenins considerable leadership power stemmed primarily from his visions and the passionate manners in which he conveyed them This was never more evident than during the Communist Revolution Lenin did not have a great military mind nor his generals and advisors and thus he created some of the more serious military blunders of the century However Lenin was able to continually inspire the Bolshevik army despite their many defeats Outnumbered outgunned starving freezing and exhausted Lenins motivated army defeated the Mensheviks in 1918 and seized control of the Russian government Adding to the amazement of his leadership ability Lenin controlled the Bolshevik revolution from another country Lenin fled to Switzerland for the greater portion of the 1917 Revolution to escape possible capture and execution While in Switzerland he authored many idealist works including Imperialism The Highest Stage of Capitalism 1916 In this book Lenin argued that the world war was an inevitable outcome of Western capitalism and imperialism whereby the capitalist states of Europe had come to rely upon aggressive foreign expansion in order to maintain economic profits Lenin was able to use that notion and similar ideas to gain support from the civilian sector as well
