For Snowball it was his comrade, Napoleon, and for Trotsky it was Joseph Stalin. Napoleon was so threatened by Snowball that he used his 9 loyal dogs to chase Snowball out of the Farm, and then brainwash everyone into believing that Snowball was the enemy. This is similar to when Joseph Stalin ordered one of his men to go kill Leon Trotsky because he hated everything that Trotsky was about. Stalin banished him from the country and “erased” him from Russian history. Snowball and Leon Trotsky both wanted the best for their country, but had political rivals who wanted nothing more than to see them
After the farm settled after the revolution and was running smoothly, two leader pigs had a conflict. Therefore, Napoleon decided to drive out the second pig, Snowball, out of the farm. “But just at this moment Napoleon stood

Even though he came out victorious, his vision of the country never came to fruition.
Lenin started this revolution for the good of the people. Unfortunately, just like animal farm, the leaders slowly descended into communism. The people of Russian ended up worse than before the revolution. Everyone agrees that the animals and Russians revolted and both clearly share similar characteristics in three similar people: Mr. Jones and Czar Nicholas II, Napoleon and Joseph Stalin, and the dogs and KGB. First, Mr. Jones and Czar Nicholas II behaved
Orwell 's warning plays out in the Animal Farm allegory of the Russian Revolution as seen in the struggles of abused farm animals. Old Major 's dream of animalism, helped brought by Napoleon and Snowball consisted of “two legs good, four legs bad”. In the Russian Revolution, Lenin used Marxism or Communism to the Russian people with help from Stalin and Trotsky.

Stalin and Trotsky take over Russia but Stalin is a tyrant and tyrants want all power to themselves so he runs Trotsky out of Russia.
Animal Farm Allegorical Connections George Orwell 's novel Animal Farm is a “Book that immediately established itself in the reader’s imagination” according to New York Times. Animal Farm reflects the events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917. In Animal Farm Napoleon represents Joseph Stalin, Leon Trotsky represents Snowball, and Farmer Jones represents Czar Nicholas II.

Whenever the other animals start to doubt Napoleon, Boxer reassures them that “If comrade Napoleon says it, it must be right” (Orwell 82). Boxer and the other animals on the farm get mistreated in many ways such as, Napoleon takes away their food rations while the pigs and dogs get a large amounts of food and better living conditions.

Same as the animals in the Manor farm did against Mr. Jones by driving him out because he was starving animals and making them work day and night.
