The Mexican Revolution, starting in 1910 as uprisings against a long-term autocrat, was a long struggle involving various internal and external factions in shifting alliances, variously described as ending in 1917, 1920, or much later.

Out of Mexico's population of 15 million, the losses were high but uncertain, one estimate being 1.5 million people killed (10% of the population), almost all in the 1910s.

(Far) leftists may rather dubiously view the large-scale violence as having caused various argued beneficial reforms, despite that most these in practice occurred much later and non-violently, during the presidency of Lázaro Cárdenas, between 1934 and 1940.
