The classic New York magazine emerges from the war years with accounts of American chess players lost in action, plus the rebuilding of chess activity afterwards. News comes of a High Court case involving the Daily Telegraph chess columnist Isidor Gunsberg, claiming damages for libel over claims of carelessness regarding flawed chess problems. BCM's problem editor, B.G. Laws, is called as an expert witness and Gunsberg wins his case, the jury awarding GBP 250 (then no mean sum). 284pp
