"Alekhine's games and writings exerted a great influence an me from a very early age ... 1 Fell in love with the rieh complexity of his ideas at the chessboard." Gary Kasparov
In 1927 Alexander Alekhine had astonished the chess world with his World Chess Championship victory over the near-invincible Cuban Jose Capablanca. Ten years later Alekhine faced another difficult battle against the Dutchman Max Euwe, to whom he had surprisingly lost the world title only two years before. Here is Alekhine's own classic account of the match, with comprehensive game annotations from both combatants.
Alexander Alekhine was undoubtedly one of the greatest chess players of all time. His bold and original conceptions which resulted in sparkling combinations and crushing sacrifices have influenced generations of players, not least the current World Champion, Gary Kasparov, who has acknowledged a great debt to Alekhine's style. His bequest to the chess world lies not only in the brilliant games which have been passed down but also in his outstanding contributions to chess literature of which this book is an important part. A collection of games covering Alekhine's whole career, Alekhine's Greatest Games of Chess, is also available from Batsford.
