Good command of strategy and tactics are the key to success in chess. Tactical skill can enhanceyour strategic ability, by broadening the range of positions where you know you can exploit a weakness in your opponent’s position.

Arranged by level of difficulty from two-move shockers to four-move combinations, Volume 1 presents the best tactical shots by famous chessplayers from Napoleon and Captain Evans (of Evans Gambit fame) in the early 1800s to Bobby Fischer and Mikhail Tal in 1960.
