For me, Russian history is my depth paper, the paper that requires a lot of knowledge over a short span of time. Personally, this is my favourite of the two history papers, and is the most interesting and easiest to revise for.
The start of the course looks at the Tsar Nicholas II and follows on to his abdication, the 1917 October revolution, and the power struggle between Stalin and Trotsky after Lenin’s death.
The paper consists of two questions, the source question, and then a choice between two essay questions. My main issue for this paper is the source question, so I figured my main focus point in these posts would be essay structure and source analysis.
The plan is to upload a Russian history post every Wednesday, but we will see how that goes in the lead up to exams…
