This fellow was one of the better players between the world wars.

Sep-15-11 Meister326: Alekhine was a great player, but I don't think I'd have wanted to know him outside of chess. I've seen a few things he was supposed to have written, and he could be nasty. I once read somewhere that he was going to play a match with Capablanca in 1940, but the war ended that. Does anybody know if this is true?

Sep-15-11 aliejin: Alekhine's life was a life exceptionally rich in episodes. Belonging to an aristocratic family World War, prison, fighting on the front and be seriously injured, months of hospital, revolution "red" losing all his money, jail again, about to be executed, exile, poverty, the Great Depression, his fight against alcohol and its opponents, World War II ..... and finally a mysterious death!
