Alexander Kolchak, leader of the counterrevolutionary White Army during the Russian Civil War

A counterrevolution is an opposing revolution that attempts to reverse a revolution. A person or group who opposes a revolution is declared counter-revolutionary. In Marxist theory, counterrevolutions are a reactionary force usually composed of bourgeois forces. In the past, feudal lords also attempted counterrevolutions against bourgeois revolutions like the French Revolution.
