Max Euwe: The Biography

Max Euwe: The Biography

Product type: Printed book

Alexander Munninghoff

This is a slightly expanded edition of a book which originally appeared in Dutch in 1976 and which contains an extensive biography of the man who was, in his time, World Champion, President of FIDE and a prolific author as well as being a full-time university lecturer. By all accounts Euwe was a modest, fair-minded and popular champion in a world of gigantic egos. He was also the methodical, driving force behind the creation of FIDE and had to exercise all his diplomatic skills when, as president, he was called upon to save the 1972 Fischer-Spassky match.

This detailed biography does full justice to Dr. Euwe's chess career and an additional chapter has been added to conclude the story up to Euwe's death in 1981. There are 116 annotated games included of which 50 contain original analysis by Euwe.

"Without this book your chess library is not worth it's name." - Hans Ree.

Published 2001, softback, 351 pages.
