From the cover: “The author presents a new approach towards the art of attack in Chess, expounding the basic principles and most complex forms of the Attack on the Castled King. A unique aspect of this book is a penetrative analysis of grandmaster play in critical stages of attacks on the King. Other chapters deal with the Classification of Attacks on focal squares, full exposition of the Classic Bishop Sacrifice, Defending the King against Attack, Principles of the suppositions and obligations in the Attack on the Castled King. Finally, there is a new look at the secrets of Capablanca’s and Alekhine’s method of handling Attacks, Chess players who have been perplexed by the complicated form of King-side Attacks will value the author’s new approach and everyone interested in the game will welcome this most enlightened and stimulating book.”
