Author’s Notes:

Power in the post-Stalin Soviet Union was exercised at the highest levels as a balancing dance among three roughly equal partners: Communist Party, Army, and KGB — often referred to as the Troika.

Generals like Borin had to be very careful to sniff out how high-level alliances were playing out at any given moment. A misstep could mean removal from command and the end of a career. With the entry of the Resident into the power mix, Borin is naturally very, very nervous. He can handle Peltsin (Party) on his own, but with KGB rearing its head, the game may have changed. Or not. Is Peltsin bluffing, playing private power games?

Borin must be right, because both his and Dima’s careers are at stake.
