This book is in three parts, to make it easier to read the archives selected from nearly 750 issues and over 40,000 pages published since 1959.

Part 1: the history of chess, year by year

Relive the most glorious pages in chess legend, such as the Match of the Century!

The book retraces year after year the great chess events and legendary games.

Part 2: Behind the scenes at Europe Chess

This book also pays tribute to those who have written the history of Europe Chess.

This is an opportunity to delve into some of the main columns, such as O’Kelly’s Faites-vous la main, Korchnoi’s great analyses and Sylvain Zinser’s essential Petit Cahier.

Part 3: Forgotten treasures

1995: Étienne Bacrot, then the youngest international grandmaster, photographed in Méricourt-sur-Somme, then blitzing against Vladislav Tkachiev, visibly very relaxed!

The archive documents have been carefully selected by the Europe Chess team, and you’ll discover some real nuggets.

For example, this problem sent by John Paul II, who describes Europe Échecs as a “papal” magazine!

We hope you enjoy reading this book as much as we enjoyed making it!
