h-file Attacks, some Greek Gifts by Fredthebear
Compiled by JoseTigranTalFischer
--*--

Fredthebear collected these games featuring kingside flank attacks using pawn levers, piece sacrifices, protruding long range batteries, and outposts invading upon the third/sixth rank. Attacks along the h-file are quite common, especially after castling kingside. The king's knight should be appreciated for the vital role it plays! Going through these games will improve your opening and middlegame attacking and checkmating skills, as the majority of games are under forty moves. Conversely, the defense of your own castled king will improve as you better recognize threats to your own kingdom.

The file is full but still needs more editing.
