A must for every correspondence player! This book celebrates in grand style the first 50 years of the International Correspondence Chess Federation. Packed with hundreds of high class annotated games (which often include detailed thought processes of players), interesting photographs, and tables of famous tournaments this book is not only excellent value for money but is one that surely must persuade any player to have a go at correspondence chess. The past of correspondence chess is covered in looking at the history of the game generally and also specifically for some 56 National CC Federations but the future is also not ignored in articles examining the impact of modern technology on the game. The inclusion of an explanation of playing rules and the ICCF rating system, amongst other articles, enhances the book making it ideal for both serious study and browsing. A huge amount of work by the editors and contributors has clearly gone into this book and it shows. Softback, 376 pages. Dimensions 130 x 198.1 x 25.4mm, 464 g.
