Facing the Kings Indian? Take No Prisoners!
Here are eighteen chapters covering the principal variations with some rarer sidelines mentioned in the Introduction. In addition to this analysis, there are sixty-three fully-annotated games illustrating the tactical and other nuances of the Attack. The Kings Indian has long been one of Blacks sharpest defenses to 1.d2-d4. Here is a book that deals with one of the most aggressive systems against this popular defense. The logic of the system is quite simple: With f2-f4 White stakes a maximal claim in the center, which he will follow up by an attack on the enemy king. Of course, Black has a lot of defensive possibilities, but must play with a feel for the positions and, above all, know the theory well. Otherwise White will quickly grab the initiative, and Black may find himself on the wrong end of a blistering, direct attack on the King.
