The article analyses the role of soldiery in the revolutionary events of 1917 in Russia. The mass of soldiery is understood as a social new formation that took shape in Russia by the beginning of 1917 and had a special type of political culture. The author highlights the features of how soldiers perceived political realities and events as well as the motivation of their behaviour. The specific ways of setting and achieving relevant goals for the mass of soldiery are analyzed. Special attention is paid to the formation of a special type of social and political communications that connected the mass of soldiery and Bolshevik organizations in 1917. The prerequisites for a unique way of formation of mass society in Russia are also traced.
Keywords: revolution, political culture, Bolsheviks, workers, peasants, mass of soldiery, mass society.
