Knut Neven states: "The French Defense has a proven reputation for adaptability and soundness, and is attractive to the Black player who seeks a complex strategic fight in unbalanced positions, with healthy counterplay and many chances to decide sharp battles in his favor! Black's defensive resources are based on a sound strategic foundation, and White must be alert at all times and willing to play forcefully and incisively in order to try to prove his advantage in positions with chances for both sides."
The second CD of Neven's work on the French Defense covers all variations after 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 and without 3.Nc3.
