KIRKUS REVIEW

To many players Dr. Euwe's name will be familiar, and to many who have reached the well known stage where their game stands still, his book will be extremely helpful. It is an exhaustive study designed for advanced players- those who are at the point of planning three and four moves ahead but who have not yet developed the judgment necessary to effect plans in accordance with their positions. The positions he discusses- at all times giving meaning to his phrases with ample use of diagrams and recorded games- are Pawn majorities on the Queen's side, Queen's side attack, Knight against 'bad' Bishop, weakening the King's side, attacking the King's field (here he emphasizes subsidiary support and protection), weak Pawns, strong squares and open files- quite a complete survey of possibilities. Add this to the array of books on chess as a creditable account of the fascinations of the middle game.
