Volume 1 contains 334 games, assiduously researched by authors Fiala and Kalendovsky, from the first part of Alekhine's life.
Includes interesting biographical material about Alekhine's formative years in pre-revolutionary Russia, and an account of a legendary "life and death game" with Leon Trotsky.
Volume 2 describes the ups-and-downs of Alekhine's chess fortunes in the period between 1921 & 1924, which was the utmost importance in his life. Following Alekhine's departure abroad in May 1921 and his decision to remain an émigré, the Russian master embarked on the anything but easy path of a professional chessplayer.
Volume 3 contains 297 games with annotations from Alekhine and his contemporaries. The world's major (and minor!) newspaper and periodical libraries have been scoured for information and games and as a result this book contains a large amount of hitherto unknown biographical and background information as recorded in contemporary sources.
