Tactics based on checkmate ideas against the enemy king decide a large proportion of chess games, so it is vital to be alert to these possibilities when they occur. Joe Gallagher provides 365 checkmate puzzles to help sharpen your skills!

In each position, your task is to find a way to force a clear-cut win. In each case the theme is checkmate: either the enemy king perishes, or can only be saved at a decisive cost in material. Joe Gallgher is ideally qualified to write on this subject. Throughout his career, he has been especially feared for his attacking ability and tactical skills.

Full solutions are given. All positions have been carefully checked for alternative solutions and for soundness of the actual solution. The puzzles, most of which have never before been published, are grouped into categories, starting with easier positions and working up to more difficult ones.

Joe Gallagher is an English grandmaster who has lived in Switzerland for many years, and is a regular memberof the Swiss national team. He has established a reputation as a top class chess writer, in particular for his work on aggressive openings such as the King's Gambit, Sicilian and King's Indian Defence. Gallagher is a co-author of the one volume openings encyclopedia Nunn's Chess Openings, and won the British Championship in 2001.
