Bobby Fisher went to the war
[ISBN: 9788483066690]

Espionage, chess and psychological war in the background of the confrontation between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky.

From 1948, the Soviet Union had completely dominated the international competitions of chess, and mainly the Championship of the World; those victories in the sport of intelligence confirmed, according to Moscow, the superiority of the Soviet system on the West. But nobody counted on Bobby Fischer. Dysfunctional and unique genius, the innate talent of Fischer and its unique personality turned to him into the ideal person to face the Soviet dominion. It lived for the chess twenty-four hours to the day and had squashed to all adversaries until arriving at the end. When its volatileness betrayed to him and it made him lose the two first games, Henry Kissinger conducted battle to conminar to him to fight by his country. To the other side of the board, Borís Spasski, a complex, sensible man, the less Soviet champion. As they reveal the authors, when Spasski began to lose, the KGB also decided to take part in his aid...

During the summer of 1972, in Helsinki, the fight of these two men on a chessboard by the Championship of the World symbolized the fight of two irreconcilable systems by the world-wide hegemony. The end, that centered the attention of the entire world, is considered "the duel of the century", and is without a doubt most famous of history. In this fascinating work, Edmonds and Eidinow skillfully reconstruct the tension of the atmosphere, the blows of effect of both sides and the intrigues that surrounded each game.
