    You can find the rules easily enough.

    Conceptually, you want to focus power to hem in your opponent and pick them off.  When I played regularly, I felt like I could see that power trying to spread and of course being repulsed.  I tended to see the game as a whole fabric, and did not pay attention to individual pieces.

    I played extreme blitz chess - 30 seconds to move except when in check.  That is a bit different and the holistic feel is more important because there is no time to analyze, but the principle of controlling your opponent still holds.  Block their moves and when you see weakness, drive a wedge in it..

    There are several books I can suggest. I had been playing for over ten years when I stumbled upon "The ABC's Of Chess," by Bruce Pandolfini. Until reading this book, I was mostly spinning my wheels in the mud so to speak.
    When Pandolfini explained the four basic tactics of chess, the pin, the skewer, the fork and the discovered check, it opened up a new world for me and I started winning a lot more games. The best advice I can give you is to check out any of his books or anything Yasser Seirwan has written on strategies of the game.
    There is no "crash course" that I know of other than studying and playing. I hope this advice will help you on your way.
    By the way, another good piece of advice is until you get your game down soundly, don't mess with blitz chess. It's what ruined my game more than anything, but that is another subject for another hub.

    Chess is a strategic game. The idea is to have the opponents King in a position where he cannot make a move. Whilst you are moving your pieces into position, be aware of your opponents pieces to avoid losing yours.

    The strategy comes in when you decide to sacrifice one of your pieces for the whole. You need to have your play worked out to a number of moves ahead, including alternative plays, should your opponent see through your plans.

    Chess is a great game for anyone who enjoys the idea of, 'If I move here, what will there reaction be?'

    For beginner rules, the links shown in previous comments, will be very useful to you.
