Understanding Chess Move by Move
Understanding Chess Move by Move
by John Nunn
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.48

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the better chess books, 1 Dec. 2008
John Nunn is one of the better chess writers. This book is very methodically laid out with each theme (eg sacrificial attack) covered with the help of grandmaster games. Nunn explains each move in simple and lucid language and there are plenty of diagrams to give a visual picture of the positions being discussed. More importantly all the modern fashionable openings are covered. This book is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best book on the subject, 22 Nov. 2008
I've been interested in this period of the history for a while but never found a book good enough to explain all the events. This book is thoroughly researched, scholarly yet written in a style and language easy to follow. A couple of reviewers have put foward the point that this book is more about the rise of the barbarians than the fall of the Roman empire. I'm afraid this is not correct as the two are inextricably intertwined. This book comes with the highest recommendation.
