"The Gambit Files: Tactical Themes to Sharpen Your Play"
by Bill Harvey

Rather than present the chessplayer with numerous lines of play to memorize, this book examines the characteristic keys and traps to a wide range of openings. There are 237 puzzles to illustrate hundreds of insights in recurring themes and tactics in 15 chess gambits. Chapters in this volume: Ruy Lopez: Gajewski Gambit; Scotch Gambit; Cochrane Gambit; Rosentreter Gambit; Wing Gambit; Grand Prix Attack: Tal Gambit; French Advance, Milner-Barry Attack; Caro-Kann: Fantasy Variation Gambit; Scandinavian, Portuguese Variation; Winawer Countergambit; Geller Gambit; Albin Countergambit; Blumenfeld Gambit; Queen's Indian, Polugaevsky Variation & Lisitsin Gambit.
