This work is probably the first book devoted to investigating the entire Bishop's Gambit. But that is not all!
A complete in depth repertoire against black's different ways of declining white's pawn offer is also provided. A great service for those who may want to take up this opening with the white pieces!
The author laboured with the analytical work for nearly two years, aiming to create one of the best theoretical guides to the King's Gambit ever written. - But if he fulfilled this ambition can of course, only be determined by the reader!
What can not be denied is that Johansson shares a multitude of theoretical novelties and insights with his readers. Basically offering them access to an almost unexplored world which until now has been reserved for a relatively small crowd of strong King's Gambiteers.
From the author of The King's Gambit for the Creative Aggressor! Instead of going on and on about the content of this book, let me just quote a very famous King's Gambiteer, grandmaster David Bronstein.
'You want to play the King's Gambit? Well, Black can draw after 3.Nf3. Play 3.Bc4 if you want to win!'
