These 12 tutorial and training modules contain the contents of all 12 volumes of “Das Mittelspiel” by world chess champion Max Euwe / national master H. Kramer (in German and for the first time in electronic format).

“The Middlegame” by world chess champion Max Euwe / Master H. Kramer is one of the classic middlegame books. This monumental work is considered one of the best of its genre. All elements of positional play are thoroughly examined and explained in detail.

These learning and training modules can be particularly helpful in middlegame training.

It is the result of a successful collaboration between Witali Braslawski (project leader and author of the Chess Academy chess program) and Schachzentrale Rattmann Verlag / Das Schach-Archiv (licensor for the publication of all 12 volumes of “Das Mittelspiel” by former world champions Dr. M. Euwe and H. Kramer in electronic format as tutorial and training modules for the Chess Academy program).
