No. 115 (Vol. VII) of "EG" magazine (page 585-586):

"Reviews- STES series1.

"Knights Ahead!" The fifth STES book, 1994. Written and compiled by Alain Pallier and Harrie Grondijs. The contrast with the other STES volume reviewed here is remarkable. Columnar solution presentation, no figurines, and an abundance of text implies, if not a different target audience, then at least different mood in that audience! The book is in the tradition of the late Richard Harman's 'Thematic Aggregations' familiar to readers of the early years of EG, but taken a step further. The theme here is all (Harold van der Heijden's wide-ranging database being the enabler) studies where, whatever the initial material, and whether sound or not, a rook draws against rook and two knights. A historical approach is attempted, while ten proposed sub-categories of draw form the basis of both presentation and discussion. The book aptly concludes with a small selection of wins, where the defence, which looks like holding on, is overcome. There are 92 studies in all, on 81 large pages. As one has learned to expect from Harrie Grondijs, there are surprise visual effects."
