    1001 Brilliant Chess Sacrifices and Combinations
    Catalog Code: B0361IS

    This book has been published several different times under several different names. The question is: Are these composed problems or are these a collection of positions from actual games?

So in solving these you should ask the questions you would ask in a composed problem. Why are the pieces of the losing side in such an awkward position? I actually had a dream about this, thinking about this question. See if you can create a game in which these positions actually arise? You will find you cannot do it

And although they are different, all these games, with their identical first move, still retain for a considerable time traces of one and the same inherited pattern. ..."
