Members of rated this series a 4..04 out of 5 Fans on said: This has been a very enjoyable series! There is so much emphasis on the 'latest and greatest' that we forget to mine these classic contests of the past and learn from them. Well presented and nice touch finding the missing tactical means by which Capa may have extracted himself and not lost the game.
