The first volume on pawn endings was published in 1982 and is now out-of-print, as is volume two, part one on rook endings. We are pleased to make volumes three to five available once again. Quantities are limited, so grab these classics of chess literature while supply last.
The third world chess champion, Jose Raul Capablanca, said, "If you want to improve your game, you must study the endgame before anything else." Rook endings are some of the most common endgames in chess, yet few have mastered them.
Beginners are not the only ones who need to brush up on the endgame. Many a titled player has blundered in the endgame.
Jose Raul Capablanca once said, “To improve at chess, you must, in the first instance, study the endgame.” Despite the study of the endgame in chess being crucial to improving our chess, it remains a neglected part of the game by many.
