Osmo Kaila collection

Osmo Kaila (1916 - 1991) was a doyen of Finnish chess and of Finnish problem chess.
To celebrate his centenary Suomen Tehtäväniekat, in conjunction with his nephew Jorma Kaila, has produced a selection of his problems.

We think this publication breaks new ground in that it is in the form of an e-book.
This can be found at the following address:
where the e-book can be opened by clicking on the title link: 'Ruutuja elämän täydeltä' ('A Life Full of Squares').

The book comprises biographical material (in Finnish), followed by the problems.
By clicking on a diagram you get an enlarged version which can be solved or played through with the Animated diagram functionality.

There's also an article written by Mr Kaila (in Swedish), while at the end there's a short one-page summary in English.

Everybody is welcome to peruse this - you'll get a glimpse into Finnish problem history and a chance to brush up on your Nordic languages.

Just to add that in April issue of EG I have presented 3 endgame study composers whose centenary is celebrated this year. Osmo Kaila is one of the three ( the other two are Guy (alive and kicking!)and Infantozzi).
