After the October Revolution, Kerensky escaped the Bolsheviks and went to Pskov, where he rallied loyal troops for an attempt to retake the capital. He appointed Pyotr Krasnov to lead the army. Also, Junker mutiny was arranged in Petrograd for his support. His troops captured Tsarskoe Selo but were defeated the next day at Pulkovo. Kerensky narrowly escaped this defeat, and for the next few weeks he lived in hiding until he could leave the country, eventually arriving in France.
