    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.
