As the animals under Jones lead lives of hunger and want, the lives of millions of Russians worsened during Nicholas ' reign. When Russia entered World War I and subsequently lost more men than any country in any previous war, the outraged and desperate people began a series of strikes and mutinies that signaled the end of Tsarist control.
