Book Description

This book completes the trilogy starting with "My Best Games of Chess 1908-1923" by Alexander Alekhine and followed by "My Best Games of Chess 1924-1937" by Alexander Alekhine.

This is a reprint of the original third book, with all of the games converted into Algebraic Figurine PGN Notation with diagrams in the back. Alekhine died in 1946, so this third volume was edited by International Master and British Chess Champion Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander, based in part on the notes left by Alekhine to some of the games.

Alexander Alexandrovich Alekhine (1892-1946) was not only one of the strongest and most original chess players who ever lived, but he was also the most controversial, second only to Bobby Fischer. Everything about his life and death was controversial and is still being written about even today
