Synopsis

Trevor Legett has written the Bible of shogi, a chess-like game of strategy. He explains the board, the moves, relative value, and effective use of each piece, and possible openings. Easy-to-follow diagrams and a sample game with commentary further elucidate clever strategies and the use of ‘paratroops” (pieces captured from an opponent) and defenses against paratroop attacks. Trevor Leggett, head of Japanese-language broadcasts for the BBC, is an expert guide, holding a rank of fourth dan in shogi.
