Armenia & The Armenians
THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
After the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, Russia withdrew from WWI.
Lenin and Trotsky signed the Treaty of Brest Litovsk, which
thereby left the Armenians and other Caucasian nations to the mercies of
the Turks and their German allies.
Armenian formations of the Tsarist Russian Army were now left to
face the Turks alone. Led by such heroic generals and partisan
commanders as Nazarpegian, Trasdamad Ganayan and Antranig, the Armenians
repulsed the Turks at Sardarabad and declared victory on May 24, 1918.
