Description "Traitors is set in Russia. The action moves between Leningrad during the last months of 1926 and Moscow in the first months of 1927. Lenin has been dead for three years. It is the time of the decisive battle for control of the Communist Party and the Revolution, as Trotsky and Zinoviev, the "old Bolsheviks", form a shaky coalition to oppose the hegemony of Stalin and his diposable ally, Bukharin."
