World War 1 was a major reason for the fall of both Tsarism and the Provisional Government. Firstly, although the war was initially well received by the public and was intended to unite the population in patriotism, it quickly became a source of discontent as defeats proved humiliating and economic crisis worsened. The major reason why the war contributed to a revolutionary situation in early 1917 was that the Tsar had taken control of the army from the experienced and respected Grand duke Nikolaevich in August 1915, and the subsequent military, economic and psychological devastation had come to be associated with him. This was exacerbated by the fact that in his absence, Tsarina Alexandra was left in charge and she proved to be incompetent, unpopular (as her German heritage aroused suspicion) and heavily influenced by Rasputin. Thus the impressionable lower class – workers and peasantry – associated failure with the Tsar and felt abandoned as he had left them to fight at the front, therefore increasing revolutionary sentiment against him.
