    Lenin and Trotsky - Stalin’s Revenge | 6

    Lenin and Trotsky - Stalin’s Revenge | 6

    It’s 1920 and in Russia, public opposition to Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky’s communist government is spreading. Oppression, censorship and – above all – famine is stirring up discontent. Even those who once stood ready to fight to bring the communists to power now want them gone. 

    But even as the duo face down the latest threats to their rule, their alliance is starting to fray. Lenin and the rest of the party are growing frustrated with Trotsky’s unwillingness to tow the party line. And that’s going to give Joseph Stalin the chance he needs to prise the two men apart and clear the path for his own rise to power.

    Lenin and Trotsky - War Is Peace | 5

    Lenin and Trotsky - War Is Peace | 5

    It’s 1918 and Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky’s new socialist government is under threat. Generals loyal to the tsar are plotting, forming armies to overthrow the Bolsheviks. The shadow of famine is falling across the nation as food shortages grow. Rival socialist groups are still active and opposed to Lenin and Trotsky’s regime. And to the west the Russian army manning the World War I battlefront is disintegrating fast. The world’s first Marxist regime is fragile, and it’s up to Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky to see off the threats to its existence.

    But now that they’ve taken power, Lenin and Trotsky’s old differences are starting to resurface just when they need to be more united than ever.

    Lenin and Trotsky - Red October | 4

    The time for revolution has come. It’s August 1917 and Russia’s provisional government is facing a military coup. Russian troops are closing in on Petrograd and the army’s supreme commander is ignoring the government’s orders to halt the advance. With its grip on power looking shaky, the government knows there’s only one force it can turn to: Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky’s Bolsheviks.

    But by freeing and rearming the Bolsheviks, the provisional government is about to sign its own death certificate. Because once Lenin and Trotsky have helped prevent the military coup, they’re going to turn their guns on the provisional government and seize power at last.
