This is the extraordinary story of how Lenin, a stranger to Russia for almost two decades, took sole power of the world's largest country in just a few fateful months. He's the political has-been who came home and made history. On his return to Russian politics, Lenin made peace with his old enemy Trotsky and gained a new acolyte in Stalin. Between the three of them, these Russian revolutionaries became the architects of a new political regime that changed the world.
