Throw every piece at the enemy king and call it an attack? Perhaps you do, but there are more refined techniques, as British Champion Jacob Aagaard explains.
Five years in the making, Volume I of the Attacking Manual deals with:
-- bringing all your pieces into the action
-- colour schemes
-- strongest and weakest points
Aagaard explains the rules of attack (the exploitation of a dynamic advantage) in an accessible and entertaining style. This groundbreaking work is well balanced between easily understandable examples, exercises and deep analysis.
This is the first thorough examination of the nature of dynamics in chess, and the principles explained in this book are relevant in every chess game played.
In lively no-nonsense language, Aagaard explains how the best players in the world attack.
Jacob Aagaard from Glasgow, Scotland, is one of the foremost chess writers of his generation and a trainer of successful pupils of all ages, from amateurs to grandmasters. In his spare time he won the 2007 British Championship and gained the grandmaster title.
