I can't think of many major revolutions that did not also inucdle a civil war.The only question is whether the civil war precedes or follows the formal transfer of authority from one principle to another.Interestingly, the collapse of communist regimes in the Soviet bloc may count as examples. However, in most cases the old nomenklatura reinvented themselves and reintegrated themselves into organs of the new regimes.These communist chameleon acts are a tribute to the potency of leninism as an interpretive tool and as a guide for successful political action. Worst luck.
