In 1929, Malik Mir Sultan Khan entered the world stage and achieved remarkable tournament successes. The young man, who was part of the entourage of an Indian diplomat, was temporarily one of the ten best chess players in the world. His astonishing career ended abruptly in 1933. Khan returned to British India with his master. He died there in 1966 without ever making another international appearance. This book traces the extraordinary life of this chess master as far as the limited sources allow.
Ulrich Geilmann (Alekhine - Life and Death of a Chess Genius, Alekhine's Ring - Operation Botvinnik) was born in Essen in 1963 and lives on the Lower Rhine.
