En svært fascinerende, innholdsrik bok om hegemonikampen mellom Steinitz og Zukertort fra 1872 til over VM-matchen deres i 1886. Et forfriskende dypdykk i sjakkhistorien, og i tillegg noen treningsoppgaver til leseren.

Det hele et nytt imponerende arbeid av IM og sjakktrener Willy Hendriks. Sjakkhistorien på siste halvdel av 1800-tallet blir ikke lenger den samme etter bøkene hans.

Forlagets egen omtale:

The rivalry between William Steinitz and Johannes Zukertort, the world's strongest chess players in the late nineteenth century, became so fierce that it was named The Ink War. They fought their battle on the chessboard and in various chess magazines and columns. It was not only about who was the strongest player but also about who had the best ideas on how to play the game.

Zukertort is certainly the tragic protagonist of this book, but is he also a romantic hero?

After his bestseller Move First, Think Later and his much-acclaimed second book, On the Origin of Good Moves , IM Willy Hendriks once again offers his unique perspective in a well-researched story that continues to captivate until the tragic outcome. The Ink War gives a beautiful impression of the 19th-century chess world and the birth of modern chess.
