The Russians Play Chess by Irving Chernev
Compiled by rudysanford
--*--

Dover Publications, 1964 edition

A good collection of attacking chess of Soviet masters. Most of these games were played in the 1930s and 1940s, many of them are short. The book is is in descriptive but there is a good amount of diagrams.

in progress, a few submitted games still need to be posted and I still have the last 3 to play over before I post them 09/04/06
