I've decided on making the French my primary weapon against 1. e4 after having not much success with the Najdorf. I recently purchased Simon Williams 2 DVD's on the French and enjoyed them greatly. But now I'm looking for some books to fill in the gaps.
If any French players could recommend a number of books that would give a complete repertoire that would be greatly appreciated.
Attacking Chess: The French by Simon Williams
The French Defence: A Complete Black Repertoire by Nikita Vitiugov
How to Play Against 1 e4 by Neil McDonald
Play the French by John Watson
Another good book on the French, but from the approach as a middle game book rather than an opening manual, is Tactics in the French by Gennady Nesis. It gives you an idea on what to do after the opening is over.
