The 3rd Chess Olympiad was organised by FIDE and took place in Hamburg in 1930. The event was won by Poland, ahead of Hungary and Germany. The individual medals went to Akiba Rubinstein, Salo Flohr and Isaac Kashdan. 18 teams took part and 605 games were played (7 were defaulted).

This book has by far the biggest game collection made so far with over 380 games and positions (many with contemporary annotations); an article on each of the teams; details of the FIDE meeting; lots of annotations and indexes of illustrations, openings and players. The book also includes 4 games from the women's World Championship, held alongside the Olympiad and won by Vera Menchik.

Other notable Olympiad participants included World Champion Alexander Alekhine, Savielly Tartakower, Frank Marshall and Mir Sultan Khan. The book contains approximately 181 illustrations and 167 diagrams.

Published 2016, softback, 312 pages.
