Our contingent of workers and peasants which is upholding Soviet power is one of the contingents of the great world army, which at present has been split by the world war, but which is striving for unity, and every piece of information, every fragment of a report about our revolution, every name, the proletariat greets with loud and sympathetic.

The Russian peasants supported the Bolsheviks in the revolutions mainly because the Bolsheviks promised to. Dissident groups challenged the power of the Russian Czar.

  My book is the first (in English) to focus on the occupation experience of a mostly rural Russian population. Given that two-thirds of Soviet Russians were peasants at the time, any attempt to understand how Soviet Russian society lived through its Great Patriotic War needs to examine life in the countryside. And he sees the decisive Soviet advantage in agricultural collectivism. “The record-breaking result was achieved,” he says, “because a ruthless dictatorial government succeeded in placing the Russian peasants, then the great majority of the Russian people, into the strait jacket of collective farms.”.

Tolstoy and the Russian Peasant By ALEXANDRA TOLSTOY MANY writers have written about Tolstoy's relations with the Russian peasants, but very few have understood the deep spiritual links which united him with them. This interesting sub-ject deserves a great deal more research and much wider treat-ment than can be covered in this short article.   Russians frequently cite this alleged war crime as Exhibit A of German brutality during the war. The peasants were subsistence farmers, barely scratching out a living. Burning their homes and barns almost ensured that they would perish over the harsh winter. Now it turns out Stalin’s Jewish henchmen did it.
