9781886846036: The Chess Games of Adolph Anderssen: Master of Attack

No one has ever played chess like Adolph Anderssen played it, nor won as much fame and glory for his charismatic style. Anderssen's hallmark is the direct (and often spectacular!) Kingside attack, executed always with aggressive optimism, resourcefulness and daring. In Anderssen, moreover, this relentless drive to checkmate is backed up by explosive tactical brilliance, leaving in its wake combinations that have filled anthologies for generations.This volume features 897 games - with only 94 draws! - richly annotated by the old Masters, and thoroughly updated for the 21st century. Also included are 80 chess problems composed by Anderssen, and a memorial essay here translated into English for the first time. Complete opening and player indexes plus 367 diagrams round out this massive chess biography of Adolph Anderssen, arguably the greatest of the great Masters.
