V. singles out a few players who advanced the attack on the Castled King after Morphy:
Chigorin, Pillsbury and Dr. Tarrash and to the highest degree Alekhine .
Vukovic thought Chigorin illustrated the power of piece sacrifice in such positions.

Pillsbury created a kind of synthesis of Attacking play with the endgame and position play of Steinitz and Lasker.
Alekhine attacking play with his maximizing the attacking threat with the appropriate level of commitment is one of the major theme of the book.
