"'...an excellent short account of Glyndwr's life...Glanmor Williams vividly describes how Wales was devastated and depopulated by the rebellion...and inevitably asks, was it worth it?' Bulletin of the Welsh Academy; '...an excellent introduction to one of the most important personalities in the history of Wales.' Liverpool Daily Post & Echo Ltd" 'a succinct, balanced, elegantly written account of our national hero .' Cambria 'Glanmor Williams's writing is both concise and detailed as he effortlessly fleshes out the truth of this legendary figure...The author's historical excitement and the breathless fast-paced style this book is written in is surely a testament to the enthusiasm and passion of Owain himself. A great read for budding historians or those interested in the national heritage of Wales.' Gwales
