Chess Kit Training Tactics Discovered Attack

In his brief introduction, Fred explains that the discovered attack is an unusually elegant - and powerful - form of double attack.

What happens in this case is that a unit moves off a line in order to "discover" (actually uncover) an attack by one of its colleagues. What usually happens is that the "discovering" piece simultaneously unleashes a secondary thread of its own. Very often it is impossible to parry both threads.
