This book contains a selection of fifty games played by all the greatest masters of the game in the last 120 years. Each game is a struggle of the most intense kind in which quarter is neither asked nor given. Ordinary "brilliancies", in which resistance on one side breaks down, have no place in this collection.
Every game is fully annotated, and to the student who finds his attacks frequently met by the bitterest resistance, these examples of master-play against similar hard opposition must have an interest that is in the highest degree instructive.
