Among the other players in this historic fifteen-round-robin event was a young master from Brooklyn, Frank Marshall. He

had some international experience, including defeating World Champion Lasker in their individual encounter at Paris in

1900. However, he certainly was not considered among the favorites at the time. Nevertheless, Marshall finished in first

place, two full points ahead of the rest of the field, the only undefeated player.

The story of this great tournament is superbly told by author Robert Sherwood. Each game is deeply annotated, while

contemporary sources and rare archival photos nicely supplement the round-by-round account.

With this victory, Frank Marshall took his place among the world-class players of his era. You are invited to join

Marshall on his journey in this splendid account of his magnificent triumph in the first major international tournament of

the twentieth century.
