If you are looking for a new defence to 1.e4, or if you play the French anyway but would like to replenish your understanding of the opening with some new aggressive ideas, then Simon Williams' book can be wholeheartedly recommended. Paul Kane Manchester Chess Federation


Simon Williams presents an ambitious opening repertoire for Black in the ever-popular French Defence. One of the world's most creative players combines his unique attacking ideas with the traditionally solid French structure, resulting in a powerful armoury of opening weapons. This will prove ideal for players who like to seize the initiative and cause problems for their opponents from the outset. Williams' recommendations in the French are based on his own repertoire which he has successfully employed at Grandmaster level.

Attacking Chess is a brand new series which focuses on traditional attacking openings, as well as creative and aggressive ways to play openings that are not always associated with attacking chess. It provides hard-hitting repertoires and weapons designed for players of all levels.

  • A Grandmaster's repertoire in the French Defence
  • Packed with new ideas and critical analysis
  • Illustrative games explain typical plans and tactics

Fehlt sonst in der Sammlung der Französisch-Enzyklopädien. Aktuell und an der ein oder anderen Stelle auch noch etwas tiefgehender im Vergleich zum Watson-Werk. Als Einstiegsliteratur allerdings nicht zu empfehlen.

HASH(0x9e86ad08) von 5 Sternen Coherent, Aggressive repertoire book on the French Defense 16. Dezember 2011
Von M. Ararat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a well organized and coherent book. The author provides the basic ideas to play an aggressive French . Since this a repertoire book all the recommendations are very subjective and the potential reader needs to understand that before buying the book. For example against the French advance: e4-e6 2.d4d5 3.e3 c5 4.c3 Nc6 5.Nf3 Williams suggests Bd7 when other alternatives such as Nh6 (Mosalenko Flexible French) are also playable. In the same variation after 6 a3 the author suggests f6 when Psakis in his book on the advance variation likes c4.

One thing I do not like about the books is the way the author use the ! sign for all his repertoire choices. While other well respected authors assign a !? mark to the same move and explain why that move is interesting along a detailed list of games and explanations. This minor objection is eclipsed by the long list of interesting moves introduced by the author in different variations. Some of this novel ideas are represented by moves that force a material unbalance that poses maximum problems to the first player.

In summary, this is a good book. Some readers may need to adjust some variations to their preferences in order to feel more at home with the resulting middlegame positions.

HASH(0x9e86af6c) von 5 Sternen Entertaining book 7. August 2011
Von Murtuza Hashim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I read most of the book except for the King's Indian Attack. Interesting material, and variations. Simon picks a good aggressive repertoire against e4 with the French Defense. I really liked the chapters on the Tarrasch Variation with the positional Rook sacrifice on f3 and the Winawer variation. Lot of attacking chess. Will make a good collection to one's library or if one is interested in playing the french defense a nice introduction to a popular opening. I hope he comes out with a Volume 2 with another aggressive repertoire based on the French.

HASH(0x9e86a9b4) von 5 Sternen Amazing book for those willing to play the french for win. 23. Februar 2012
Von Alexander Búfalo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I bought the digital version of this book so my opinion only goes on the content.

I am feeling that my game is lacking of active positions with black pieces and decided to look carefully at this "Attacking Chess" series. In the past I used to play the french defense (now I play e5) against e4, but was always in difficult positions and decided to quit it. So, after reading that this book would show how to play the french defense actively, I decided to give it a try.

So far, I only read the first chapter (advance variation), where the author suggests an early f6 that strikes in white's centre, managing to get a lot of counter play, followed by O-O-O by black. The positions are usually those of oposite castles and black's control of the center is inspiring, making me wish to play the french again.

The book covers the Winawer, the advance and the exchange variations (mainly). I didn't see the classical line in the book, but after the winawer (1-e4 e6 2-d4 d5 3-Cc3 Bb4) the second player will hardly want to play the classical again (1-e4 e6 2-d4 d5 3-Cc3 Cf6).

All the games are fully commented by good text and good variations. The author is very honest and it is clear that the variations that he is showing may be dangerous to play against well prepared white players, but if the player that is taking the black pieces is a good tactical and positional player, there is nothing to be afraid. Moreover, if the student analyses the games actively, this book will also enhance his(her) tactical and positional skills, because the positions are often interesting.

Finally, I loved the way that the book treats the opening. Each chapter describes a variation. The author first explains the typical positions that the player will find on those lines, the typical plans for both players(pawn structures, which pieces to exchange and to not exchange) and then follows a list of fully annotated games. If you have time to check the positions on a database, I believe that this book will improve your knowledge of chess at a good rate.

Five stars.

I got the book, and did the usual: Opened, read, in front of a chess board. I have yet to move a piece. I read, and read, and read. And then I went to the data base of the author's games, and found, french defense after french defense, played in real tournaments, in which he won!. Yeah! This is a must buy, for much obviously went into the writing of this book. And I emphasis, "writing," which means it is a delight to "read." It instructs, it delights, and it is a lot of fun. I do not go into discussions of this or that line. Get real. If you know the french defense, you know the Advance, Exchange, Winawer, etc. The point is, with this effort put into showing the joy of the defense, it is a great book to have.

HASH(0x9e873b40) von 5 Sternen Best French Book 13. September 2013
Von Molokai Cowboy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
There are over 100 books on the French Defense in English. This one is the best of the recent ones, published in the past 10 years or so. It is very readable, fairly easy to follow considering the depth of analysis. I particularly enjoyed the discussion of the MacCutcheon which has long been a favorite of mine. If you need to dig deeper on the French I suggest: Mastering the French (Harley), Winning with the French (Uhlmann,actually a collection of his games originally published in German) and of course Watson's Play the French.
