1917 Bolshevik Revolution

To what extent was the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution financed / orchestrated by American bankers? Was this revolution more of a revolt of serfs against feudal landlords or alternatively, the use of brutality, terrorism, and mass murder in order to forcefully subjugate a population to a system of rule against their own will?

    The US’ invasion of Russia after the revolution and alliance with the White Army would be pretty hard to explain if it was truly backed by US interests. I’d also recommend reading Thurtston’s history of the USSR, terror had very little to do with the Soviet government in the early days, slowly becoming more and more prevalent as foreign support of internal reaction threatened the revolution (which again makes me question the involvement of foreign powers in supporting the revolution in the first place)
