Description / CLEARANCE - Sacking the Citadel
Four hundred years ago, an Italian chess master, Gioachino Greco, discovered an extraordinary bishop sacrifice on h7 that often leads to checkmate or a significant material advantage. More amazing still, he recorded the idea!
This book chronicles the history of that idea, what many have come to call the Classic Bishop sacrifice, from its discovery and formative years through its remarkably complex uses in modern chess.
His taxonomy of the sacrifice is comprehensive and full of pleasant surprises for beginners and even accomplished masters.
