William Winter, the only British chess champion ever to be arrested and imprisoned for sedition, was one of the more colourful characters of the British chess menagerie - an international master and chess correspondent both for the Manchester Guardian and the Daily Worker. He combined his revolutionary views away from the game with a fine clear writing style and impeccably classical strategies over the board.
