PERFECT FOR FANS OF NETFLIX'S THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT 'Gripping.' SUNDAY TIMES 'Pure drama.' INDEPENDENT 'Compelling.' NEW YORK TIMES Bobby Fischer Goes to War by David Edmonds and John Eidinow details the occasion when Bobby Fischer met Boris Spassky in one of the most thrilling and politically charged chess matches of all time.

But in 1972 along came the American, Bobby Fischer: insolent, arrogant, abusive, vain, greedy, vulgar, bigoted, paranoid and obsessive - and apparently unstoppable. Against him was Boris Spassky: complex, sensitive, the most un-Soviet of champions. As the authors reveal, when Spassky began to lose, the KGB decided to step in. . .
