Über den Autor
Emanuel Berg is a grandmaster with a peak rating of 2627, who has represented Sweden at Olympiads and other major team events.
The French Defence is one of the most popular and reliable responses to 1.e4.
This book covers the most critical variation of the Winawer, which occurs after the opening moves 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Bxc3† 6.bxc3 Ne7 7.Qg4. This volume presents three contrasting ways of meeting White’s aggressive opening system: 7...cxd4 leading to the notorious Winawer Poisoned Pawn; 7...0–0 8.Bd3 f5, a solid yet strategically complex system; and 7...0–0 8.Bd3 Nbc6, which leads to a tense, full-blooded battle.
Über das Buch | Reviews
"Chess is so deep that you can dig so deep into an opening variation that you feel close to the other side... Swedish (honorary Norwegian) grandmaster Emanuel Berg has done just this with the Winawer variation in the French Defence. In a two-volume work, Emanuel has performed a piece of research worthy of a doctorate on these rich lines. Especially on the Poisoned Pawn Variation Emanuel has a lot to say. This is a book on World Championship level; but also brilliant for the ordinary club player fascinated with chess openings and the aesthetic aspects of chess."

"Someone must love the French at Quality Chess because they are also publishing a 3-volume survey by the noted French expert Emanuel Berg. I took a quick look at the second volume, and it seemed pretty awesome." GM Matthew Sadler . Wikipedia LiteraturLink
"The first two volumes of Emanuel Berg's trilogy on the French Defence offer a repertoire against White's best move, namely 3 Nc3. Nothing else tests Black's skill as much as this classical developing move. On the other hand, nothing else offers Black as much as fun and adventure either; it represents a true challenge for players on both sides of the board, especially if Black selects the Winawer Variation (3 ...Bb4) as recommended here by Berg... The depth of both books is impressive and there is a fine blend of explanatory prose and variations."
