Description

I have been a fan of the French Defence since I started playing chess. This opening has always been my main weapon on the way to gaining the Grandmaster title, and now within the pages of this eBook I explain everything that I have learnt about the French Defence over the last 25 years.

This eBook and included PGN files will allow you to play the French Defence with confidence. The book contains over 300 pages and in addition, PGN files which will allow you to play along with the moves on your computer in your favourite chess program.

This product has been in the making for a long time, and now I am happy to share it with you. I just hope that you find as much enjoyment from the French Defence opening as me!
