1.e4 e5 2.d4 exd4 3.c3, is one of the most aggressive chess openings ever devised.
Dynamite was invented by a Swede, Alfred Nobel. The book you are reading now, however, was not written by Nordic players.
Instead, Grandmaster Karsten Müller and FIDE Master Martin Voigt bring a touch of German method to the analysis of the explosive group of classical open games where White goes for out-and-out attack based on an early e4, d4 and Bc4, often with c2-c3 to follow.
Muller and Voigt do not confine themselves to the Danish Gambit alone but they examine a whole family of related opening variations that share some common characteristics. Most importantly, White is ready to offer some material (a pawn or two, sometimes a piece or more).
White goes for the jugular and if Black is not careful he will not even reach the middle game, let alone an end-game.
A guiding principle for the authors of this book is thatWhite will play attacking chess, fighting for the initiative at every move. If Black does not meet the challenge in an equally determined way, he will surely lose.
