The World Chess Championship was organized by FIDE in 1948 after all the leading contenders or claimants for the world title died during or immediately after World War II. The Hague and Moscow saw the first tournament to decide the World Chess Championship. Botvinnik, Keres and Smyslov of the USSR, Euwe of Holland, Reshevsky of the USA, the great masters of the day, played lively, imaginative and highly distinctive games in this historical event. Harry Golombek, personally acquainted with all of the contestants and an opponent of most of them, studied the tournament games closely. He gives all the games with thorough and complete annotations, biographies of the players and a discussion of the theoretical values of the openings used.
