Kerensky supported Russia’s participation in WWI and it was a disaster because of the tsarist regime’s conduct of the war effort. When the February revolution broke out he supported the removal of the monarchy. He instituted basic civil liberties…..the freedoms of speech, press, assembly, and religion; universal suffrage; and equal rights for women. Throughout Russia he became one of the most widely known and popular figures among the revolutionary leadership. He alienated the moderates and the officers’ corps by summarily dismissing his commander in chief, General Kornilov, and personally replacing him ; he also lost the confidence of the left wing by refusing to implement their radical social and economic programs and by …planning to assume dictatorial powers *a guess on my part*. When the Bolsheviks seized power he was unable to gather forces to defend his government. The rest is history. He moved to the US in 1940 ..lectured at universities and wrote books.
