Think that's a bit harsh. We tend to think of the big revolutions happening all at once - rarely does that occur. Took the Russians a few attempts to get it right (wrong???). It always involves a piece of luck, like a surfer hitting the right wave. When the right one comes along it breeds confidence and momentum - still think Spring is massive in the whole of Europe. has many similarities with 1848.
The revolutions spread across Europe after an initial revolution began in France in February. Over 50 countries were affected, but with no significant coordination or cooperation among their respective revolutionaries. Some of the major contributing factors were widespread dissatisfaction with political leadership, demands for more participationin government and democracy, demands for freedom of the press, other demands made by the working class, the upsurge of nationalism, and the regrouping of established government forces.
