"Chess was his mother tongue." -- Richard Reti
Undoubtedly one of the strongest players the game has ever seen, the Cuban master Jose Raul Capablanca was renowned for his lightning quick chess comprehension, faultless judgment, and nearly unrivaled endgame skill, qualities which enabled him to win and retain the World Championship from 1921 to 1927.
This superbly annotated treasury includes 113 of the Cuban master's greatest games against Marshall, Lasker, Euwe, and many other formidable opponents. It also contains not only many games previously unavailable in book form, but a biography of Capablanca, his tournament and match record, and an Index of Openings.
