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 the pieces into the action, momentum, colour schemes, strongest and weakest points, evolution/revolution.
Jacob 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.
