Chess Tactics Books
In the late 1990s, five books, each dedicated to a unique tactical theme, and each with approximately 100 pages, were published by the late Russian correspondence master Victor Charushin. All seven titles were then combined into one comprehensive volume - The Tactician's Handbook. To create this book, German grandmaster Karsten Müller has carefully reviewed and then selected the material he thought most enlightening. Then instructive exercises were added. All the analysis has been checked by the silicon monster, while Charushin’s notes and comments were revised where necessary.
The Tactician's Handbook

Müller has virtually doubled the size of the original work by adding eleven new chapters, including: Destroying the King’s Shelter; Sacrifices on f6; Sacrifices on e6; The Magic of Mikhail Tal; Shirov’s Sacrifices; and The Fine Art of Defense. In addition, there are exercises at the end of each new chapter to help you hone your skill of sacrificing.
