The Stonewall defense or attack is a variation of the Queen’s Pawn Game,  and is generally characterized by White playing his pawns to d4 & e3, playing Bd3, Nd2, and then playing Pawns to c3 and then f4; although the moves are not always played in that order. The Stonewall is a system White heads for a very specific Pawn formation, rather than try to memorize long lines of different variations. If White puts up the Stonewall formation it is called a Stonewall Attack, regardless of how Black chooses to defend against it. When Black sets up a Stonewall formation, with pawns on c6, d5, e6 and f5, it is considered a variation of the Dutch Defense. MCO-15 gives the following as a main line: 1.d4, d5; 2.e3, Nf6; 3.Bd3, c5; 4.c3, Nc6; 5. f4. 

Here our masters outline successful strategies for employing the Stonewall and things to take into consideration.

Fans on said:Good explanations of why some of the 'classic' variations are no longer in vogue, for example: ...Be7. Especially interesting to me as I am a Dutch player.
