    Book Description

    A very popular chess opening thoroughly modernized.

    Grandmaster Dejan Antic and International Master Branimir Maksimovic have written a book that will change the way chess players look at the French Defense, one of the most popular chess openings.

    This is a complete and up-to-date work for players of all levels, and contains brand-new concepts in topical modern lines such as the Steinitz, McCutcheon and Morozevich Variations.

    The authors explain strategic concepts and methods of attack, and present numerous novelties in all main lines of the French. But they have also developed several sidelines into deadly surprise weapons.

    • Play the 4. f3 Nimzo-Indian
      The Most Aggressive Response to the Nimzo Explained by One of it's Leading Exponents
      The Nimzo-Indian is an extremely popular and reliable defence, upon which most world champions have relied at some point in their careers. Black controls the vital e4-square with his pieces, and retains total flexibility with his central pawns. By playing 4. f3, White challenges Black's idea head-on. Either Black grants White control of e4, or else he must commit his pawn to d5, whereupon White can begin concrete action in the center.
