This Foxy Openings set is so big it takes three volumes to hold all of the information! The French Defense undeniably covers a lot of ground, so IM Andrew Martin concentrates on critical lines for Black which will allow him to easily and successfully add the French to his opening arsenal.
Volume One of The French Defense Reworked is titled "Adventures in the Main Line Winawer Easily Explained". IM Martin dissects the crucial lines of the Main Line Winawer, with special emphasis on the razor-sharp Black reply 5.a3 Bxc3+ 6.bxc3 Qa5!
