Chess owes its extraordinary strategic depth to pawns. These humble pieces can take on many roles in the chess struggle. They can be blockers, batteringrams, selfsacrificing heroes, and can even be promoted to the ranks of royalty. This book elucidates the pawn's multifaceted nature. The author, an experienced grandmaster and trainer, tackles a fundamental chess topic, and by investigating highquality games from grandmaster practice, provides an armory of pawnplay concepts that will help the reader make the right judgments at the board. Includes chapters on isolated pawns, hanging pawns, passed pawns, doubled pawns, backward pawns, pawnchains, and pawnislands. Softback, 208 pages.
