fischer world champion - Euwe & Timman
Relive one of the great moments in chess history. The acclaimed classic, Fischer World Champion!, conveys the full drama of the clash, both on and off the board between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky.
Almost a year before the first move was made at the board, the infighting started. The world looked on in anxiety as Bobby quarrelled about the venue, the number of games, the prize-fund, the television rights, the cameras, the lighting and the chairs.
Shortlisted for the British Chess Federation 2002 Book of the Year, this book provides the inside story of the bloody prelude and includes the original analysis of the games by Jan Timman, one of the world’s finest analysts.
