En herlig godt dokumentert turneringsbok om storturneringen i 1904 i amerikanske Cambridge Springs, uventet vunnet av Frank Marshall to poeng foran David Janowski og verdensmester Emanuel Lasker.

En fin innbundet bok der både selve turneringen og alle partiene er godt kommentert, med atskillig bruk av datidens kilder. Forfatteren og bidragsyterne hans går inn i virkeligheten rundt turneringen og partiene i 1904, med samtidig et lite og ikke så sjenerende blikk på nyere erfaringer og analyser. Stormester Soltis har skrevet forordet.

Forlagets omtale:

Marshall’s Brilliant Victory

In the spring of 1904, most of the chess world’s elite gathered in the sleepy northwestern Pennsylvania town of Cambridge Springs, where the first great tournament of the twentieth century was to take place. World Champion Emanuel Lasker topped the field. The champions of America (Harry Pillsbury), Russia (Mikhail Chigorin), France (David Janowski) and the Austria-Hungarian Empire (Carl Schlechter) were also playing.

Among the other players in this historic fifteen-round-robin event was a young master from Brooklyn, Frank Marshall. He had some international experience, including defeating World Champion Lasker in their individual encounter at Paris in 1900. However, he certainly was not considered among the favorites at the time. Nevertheless, Marshall finished in first place, two full points ahead of the rest of the field, the only undefeated player.

The story of this great tournament is superbly told by author Robert Sherwood. Each game is deeply annotated, while contemporary sources and rare archival photos nicely supplement the round-by-round account.

With this victory, Frank Marshall took his place among the world-class players of his era. You are invited to join Marshall on his journey in this splendid account of his magnificent triumph in the first major international tournament of the twentieth century.
