A brief history of chess – Alex Gendler





Trace the storied historical past of the sport of chess, from its origins in seventh century India to the pc software program we use at present.

The attacking infantry advances, their elephants already having damaged the line of defense. The king tries to retreat, however the enemy flanks him from the rear. Escape is unimaginable. This isn’t an actual struggle— neither is it only a sport. Over the 1,500 years of its existence, chess has been often known as a navy technique software, a metaphor for human affairs and a measure of genius. Alex Gendler shares its historical past.
