Book Description

Translated by Bernard Cafferty from the original Russian edition of 1929.

Ilyin-Genevsky was a prominent pre-revolution figure in Russian chess and also a true Bolshevik. This is a personal account of his career, which gives unique insights in life in Russia before and after the 1917 October Revolution. The author was wounded and shell-shocked in WOI and killed by a Nazi bomb nearby Leningrad in 1941.
