Modern Chess Strategy

This book does not pretend to be a complete textbook of the conduct of a chess game; neither does it claim to present a new approach to chess strategy: my aim has merely been to produce a practical guide to the study of the middle-game. Everyone who desires to take up chess seriously is interested in the question: How can I recognize the characteristic features of a position and then lay my plans accordingly? To help answer this question is the task of this book. This link for educational purpose only. Please remove file from your computer after familiarization.

This book does not pretend to be a complete textbook of the conduct of a chess game; neither does it claim to present a new approach to chess strategy: my aim has merely been to produce a practical guide to the study of the middle-game. Everyone who desires to take up chess seriously is interested in the question: How can I recognize the characteristic features of a position and then lay my plans accordingly? To help answer this question is the task of this book.

We begin with an examination of the peculiarities of the individual pieces and pawns. Then the problem of the centre, material and space advantage on a particular section of the board, pawn formations, and some general problems of the chess struggle are discussed.

As a foundation for the book I have used a large number of games spanning many periods of chess, though naturally examples from recent tournaments predominate. It may be noticed that my own games appear with comparative frequency. This is not because I consider them to be the best examples of correct strategical play, but because every chess player understands his own games better than those of others and can therefore best explain the thought processes he experienced during the game.
