The two Rooks sacrifice is one of the most thrilling themes in chess. The sacrificer gives up more than a Queen in equivalent value to gain only a move or two to further the attack. When it works, it's a triumph of mind over matter. When it doesn't, at least the game is over quickly.
The authors have painstakingly researched the chess archives to find examples of the two Rooks sacrifice. But this book is more then a collection of diagramms. Each example is a gem which shows its best facets in the light of contemporary chess opening theory and under the microscope of the authors' precise analysis.
