The June offensive was a strategy panned by the Russian minister of war, Aleksandr Kerensky. It was a display of the the inability of the provisional government to be able to adapt to the revolutionary sentiment back in the 1900's.

It was a planned formed by Kerensky in order to raise the morale of the Russian army, the army at that time was degenerating and the discipline was decreasing leading to strikes and many leaving their posts.

Although this plan was initially successful the bad timing from Kerensky due to the March revolution the soldiers refused to leave their trenches and fight, The offensive had collapsed by July 3-4.

I'm new and my teacher hasn't finished the whole course with me yet, but i'll give you what i know.

The fundermental laws were in 1906, around the same time the Duma's started. they were laws promulgated by the Russian emperor Nicholas II, ostensibly to carry out the governmental reforms promised in his earlier October Manifest. (I don't know this all that well)

The Dumas happened in 1906 too and went on to 1917, when Nicolas abdicated. the Tsar pledged to introduce further civil liberties, provide for broad participation in a new "State Duma", and endow the Duma with legislative and oversight powers. The State Duma was to be the lower house of a parliament, and the state council of imperial russia, the upper house. it was a way for all the parties like the Mensheviks and SRs to meet up and speek to the Tsar because he narrowly came out after the 1905 revolution. The first duma didn't last very long because the Tsar wanted to keep his power.

The 1917 revolution happened in two parts. the first was from Tsarism to Provisonal government, the 2nd was provisional government to Lenin. the first was when the tsar was forced to abdicate, but wouldn't nominate his son because Alexis was ill. i think he had cystic fibrosis. anyway, other parties saw the first 1917 revolution as the main revolution except the bolsheviks and they tried to overthrow them in july (hence July days or April days depending on which calander you work with), but because the temporary provisonal government had the socialist on their side who had the army. Prime minister Kerensky either drove the bolsheviks away or jailed them, but when General Kornolov took the army and threatened to overthrow the government, Kerensky brought lenin back with his bolsheviks and gave him weapons (silly move, i think). he defeated kornolov and was now seen as a hero, making people like him. he then overthrew the government in october 1917 (25 - 27th). the bolsheviks come out on top.

after that no more provisonal government, they were always seen as a halfway house and so when they were overthrown it wasn't unbelieveable because they weren't meant to be around for very long anyway.

i hope that helps a little. sorry if it don't.

I looked back at my notes after I answered your question and I realised that i had done barely anything on the fundermental laws. I hope I just do ok because i just want to pass. I am also doing women's rights and remembering the historians is a little difficult.

Good luck with your exam, i hope you pass!!
