The Art of Checkmate: new translation with algebraic chess notation by Georges Renaud & Victor Kahn

The Art of Checkmate, first published in Monaco in 1947, has remained one of the most popular and enduring chess books of all time, loved by chess players and regularly appearing in top ten lists of their favourites. Remarkably, despite its widespread popularity, the first English edition, published in the 1950s, was marred by careless and faulty translation. But now, for the first time, all these mistakes have been rectified so as to reflect accurately the authors' original work and thereby make the English edition of The Art of Checkmate an even better ebook. The Art of Checkmate offers the reader a systematic classification of all the principal types of checkmate and the procedures required to achieve these in actual play. Each chapter starts with the basic pattern of the checkmate under consideration and this is followed by an explanation of the process whereby the mate can be carried out. Examples from practical play and test yourself puzzle positions then reinforce the readers' understanding of the mechanics of the checkmate and their ability to deliver crushing and, at times, picturesque checkmates in their own games. An enjoyable and easy-to-read ebook chess instructor that will benefit players of any ability.
