Endgames with just kings and pawns are the most basic type of ending. Without an understanding of them it is impossible to master more complicated endings. This book provides a thorough course in pawn endings, from the simple to the highly complex. Many interesting and beautiful positions are included, and there are test positions for the reader to solve. The authors follow the rigorously logical conventions introduced by John Nunn in his famous series of endgame manuals. This has necessitated a phenomenal amount of new analysis of theoretical positions to assess precisely the merits of each and every move. This is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the most fundamental type of endgame, including puzzle positions to test the reader's understanding. It makes use of the new computer software specifically geared to solving pawn endings. In addition, it's logically organized in a user-friendly fashion. (5 3/4 x 8 1/4, 288 pages, diagrams)
