4 French Defence Books for Christmas

On the seventh day of December we consider the French Defence in chess books. This defense has been amazingly popular for over 100 years. In the French after 1.e4 e6 both sides play to win. Positions become unbalanced. White has a kingside space advantage. Black has one on the queenside. Whoever can successfully bust open the center has the biggest advantage. You must be prepared. You need good tools to understand how to play the French Defence opening. Books such as the ones below provide you with good strategies and tactics to improve your play. These might give you some good ideas.

1. Grandmaster Repertoire 16: The French Defence by Emanuel Berg
The third volume in this famous series covers the Tarrasch and Advance Variations.

2. The Even More Flexible French: Strategic Ideas & Powerful Weapons by Viktor Moskalenko
The author offers several ideas in all the major variations of the French Defence.

3. The Classical French: Move by Move by Cyrus Lakdawala
This book has very detailed coverage of the 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 variations.

4. French Defense: The Solid Rubinstein Variation by Hannes Langrock
Coverage of the 3...dxe4 line as well as lines for Black vs other rare White moves.
