Chess books about French Defence

The French Defence, 1.e4 e6, is a sound positional response to 1.e4 which aims to construct a firm foothold in the centre with 2...d5. One possibility for white is to play the Advance Variation, 3.e5, which is quite dangerous and can lead to complex play, however if black plays accurately, he can be satisfied with his prospects. The Tarrasch Variation, 3.Nd2, is considered to be white´s soundest response to the French Defence and it is especially favoured by players who like to start from a solid positional base. A sharper option for white is to play the very popular 3.Nc3. Both black responses, 3...Nf6 and 3...Bb4, usually lead to complicated tactical lines, of which the ´French Poisoned Pawn´ variation is the most notorious.
