Stalingrad Variation...

Jan 11, 2013, 6:47 PM 0

I've been reading the book Stalingrad by Antony Beevor and it is incredible. The utter abandon that both the Nazis and the Russians fought wit on the Eastern Front can only be lionized. Check-out this passage : "Richthofen's massive bombing raids had not only failed to destroy the enemy's will, their very force of destruction had turned the city into a perfect killing ground for the Russians to use against them (Stalingrad 119)." Is there a Chess analogy to this? You can use your opponents infiltration and combustable attack to your advantage. Geller - Euwe Candidates '53 and Tal - Koblents Training Game '57 come to mind. Pair this book wit Rihannas' Unapologetic Album and Hell...there's a night right there. I am going to see if I can re-enact some semblance of the Eastern Front at the Rink tonight. Hmm...what side should I join?
