In this book, a must for all serious chessplayers, Garry Kasparov deeply analyses the greatest games of two players who's rivalry is legendary and he assesses the legacy of these chess geniuses.

The fifth volume in Kasparov's magnificent history of the World Chess Championship focuses on the great rivalry between Viktor Korchnoi and Anatoly Karpov.
Between 1974 and 1981 Korchnoi and Karpov copntested three matches, two of these being directly for the world title. Over the years they have played a total of over 100 games against each other. Many of their battles are recognised as some of the greatest games of the modern era.

Viktor Korchnoi is a living chess legend and one of the greatest players never to become world champion. His career began in the 1940"s and even now - well into the 21st century - he maintains a hunger for battle and remains a fearsome competitor in high-level international events.

Anatoly Karpov gained the right to challenge Bobby Fischer for the world tittle by winning through the Candidates series in 1974, defeating Korchnoi in the final. As is well known, Fischer refused to defend the tittle and in 1975 Karpov became champion "by default". Although he did not have to contest a championship match to gain the tittle, Karpov proved that he was a worthy champion by winning virtually every major tournament over the next decade.
