This is one of the great classics of chess literature. British Champion William Winter deeply annotates 50 games that were played in matches for the World Chess Championship, starting with the 1907 match between Lasker and Marshall and ending with the 1951 match between Botvinnk and Bronstein. Winter writes with authority about these famous games, because he was personally present when many of them were played. Winter met all but one of the players he writes about in this book and Winter played tournament games against most of the grandmasters discussed in this book. All 50 games have been translated into Algebraic Notation with Diagrams by Sam Sloan.
