John NunnSample pages (pdf)
Nunn's Chess Endings is a practical endgame manual, in two volumes, with an emphasis on methods and techniques in endgames which require precise analysis. A host of example positions, with analysis, illustrate key tactical motifs in these endgame positions, taken from practical play. In each type of endgame Nunn has selected a series of topics which are both important and poorly covered in existing endgame books. Careful study of these topics will produce an improvement in any player's endgame play.
Volume 2 of the series covers rook endings and endings with rooks and minor pieces.
Elementary endgames are not covered in this series and the reader should consult "Understanding Chess Endgames", also by John Nunn, for information on basic endgame theory.
