    "The Fire Attack" by Mikhail Tal and Iakov Damsky, brings out all the brightest and most beautiful of the great victories of the Soviet Grandmaster of Chess and World champion Mikhail Tal Nehemevicha. His aggressive, unpredictable, graceful, and in some cases even warlike games are always admired and will always be admired by millions of players around the world. He was a true master of the attack on the king. Tal showed that the need for a good attack, unexpected solutions, endless sacrifices, even if not always correct in terms of computer analysis. In the hands of the party of such attacks are difficult to defend, and that therefore it is necessary to closely monitor how Tal led his attacks, and to learn from him the art. Though Tal and used to say: "There are two types of attacks: correct and mine" - it's just self-irony, a joke, in which, of course, there is some truth. In this book, from the dialogue of world chess champion Mikhail Tal with journalist Iakov Damsky the reader learns a biography of one of the most brilliant and original players of our time, its principles and its chess sports biography.
