      Modern Art of Attack
      "The Art of Attack by Vukovic" ends with the Alekhine era --- the last example being in 1947. In the 1950's a new generation emerged starting with the daring play of Mikhail Tal. He and his contemporaries are where we begin with this book, taking the reader through the 1980's. The chapters are 1)Attacking the King Which Can't Castle, 2)Attacking the Uncastled King, 3)Attacking the Kingside Castled Positions, 4)St.George Attack, 5)Greek Gift Attack, 6)Defensive Measures, 7)Attacking the Opposite Side, 8)Couterattacking, 9)Great Attacking Players including Tal's Daring Sacrifical Attacks, Fischer's Scientific Style, Karpov's Fiery Attacking Style. A great book for players of all strengths.

      Combinations in the Middlegame
      As I also remarked in my review, the Soviet concept of a beginner is clearly wider than ours, and to make the book even wider in its scope and appeal I have added some supplementary material. I must confess that I have had some misgivings about the correct rendering of certain technical terms, but in the absence of an internationally accepted terminology each translator must take his own line on such matters. Also in translating certain extracts quoted from authors whose books are available in English I have followed the Russian text in those rare cases where it differs slightly from the English version. I trust that this book will give real pleasure to its readers and help those players who wish to learn to play combinations.
