The Attacking Manual 1 &2

Jacob Aagaard took up the big challenge of writing 2 books to cover the subject of Attacking Chess. This is meant to be a modern day Art of Attack in Chess.

I think it's somewhat above my rating and something to study deeper in the future. I've asked a number of local libraries to purchase it. He has a number of positions that he would like us to think about for 10-20 minutes for plans. One could easily spend a year working with these books.

Volume 1 is his ideas on the nature of dynamic chess while Volume 2 is more like the Art of Attack. Aagaard makes the point that the A or A descriptions are not clear.
I agree with him.

below are two excerpts from the publisher
