'Chess is 99% tactics' is an old saying. Some might disagree, but anyone who has seen his strategic masterpiece destroyed by tactical flaws will agree that even the remaining 1% depends on tactics.

In Chess Tactics from Scratch experienced trainer Martin Weteschnik provides expert guidance on how to improve your chess tactics. Weteschnik assumes no prior knowledge from the reader and systematically analyses the elements of tactics and logical thinking techniques. By the end of the book the reader will have the tools to be a deadly tactician.

The first edition of this book, Understanding Chess Tactics , is hailed as a "modern classic". This expanded and updated edition benefits from major improvements:

  • 300 brand new test positions of varying difficulty
  • All text and analysis has been revised and improved
  • Two completely new chapters on Overloading and Candidate Moves.
