This paper seeks a better understanding of the global impact of the Russian Revolution of 1917 by focusing on Great Britain in the first years of the interwar period leading to the beginning of the Second World War. A wide variety of sources was used in order to explore different facets of the Communist Party as it existed in Great Britain and how influential it was in the wake of the successful Bolshevik movement. One source discusses the membership of the Communist Party in Great Britain from 1920 to the end of the Second World War in 1945. Another source covers the reconstruction of the Labour Party in Great Britain after the First World War and the development of political ideology within the Labour Party after the Russian Revolution. In the years following the First World War there was a series of revolutions and uprisings that were both ideologically inspired and not ideologically inspired by the success of the Bolsheviks in Russia.
