Pawn Chains
Pawns must be looked after because of their vulnerability to attack by pieces, so we often put them in chains
a chain is where each pawn is protected by another pawn, except the base
they form a barrier to enemy forces and give a region of space for their own pieces to move about in
You generally attack a pawn chain at its 'base'
Sometimes you can break it up into smaller 'chains' with a pawn movement
