T G Whitworth

This, the most comprehensive book on the Platovs, includes a brief biography of the brothers plus 213 diagrammed studies with full solutions and explanations.

The Platov brothers, Vasily and Mikhail, were born in Riga, Latvia, in the early 1880s. Vasily became a doctor in Moscow and was later awarded the Order of Lenin for his achievements in medicine. Mikhail became an engineer, also in Moscow, but, after making an uncomplimentary remark about Stalin, was arrested and sentenced to ten years in a "corrective" labour camp in Kargopol. After less than a year there he was dead.

The brothers composed studies, initially separately then later together, which aimed to depict the diversity of the struggles between pieces and pawns whilst maintaining natural "game-like" starting positions.

Published 1994, softback, 150 pages.
