I think that nowadays it is pretty much common knowledge that the inventor of the Marshall Attack was

the legendary grandmaster Frank Marshall. He famously played it for the first time in a game against

Capablanca in Manhattan in 1918. Capablanca was able to pick his way through the complications and

win that game, but despite its inauspicious beginnings the idea has not only survived but thrived in

tournament play. The former world champion, Boris Spassky, reinvented the opening in his match

against Mikhail Tal in 1965, and since then the Marshall Attack has been a key weapon in the Black

arsenal against the Ruy Lopez. Indeed, today it is commonly considered as one of the top three best

openings against 1.e4, along with the Berlin Defence and the Najdorf Sicilian.


The list of famous players who have used and continue to use the Marshall is long indeed, with notable

names being Nunn, Leko, Aronian, Svidler, and many others. I have noticed that Ding Liren is including

the Marshall in his repertoire at the very highest levels. On a personal note, my knowledge of the

Marshall helped me to become a grandmaster and has allowed me to play some of my best games.


This book is about the Marshall Attack and the lines which can be grouped together under the banner of

the so-called Anti-Marshall. The theory has developed so much in the last decade that there is more than

enough material to be going on with just in those areas, but I also decided to include a detailed look at an

important line in the Exchange Variation.
