Any study of Medieval Wales cannot be complete without reading this book. Professor R. R. Davies was the authority on Wales and his passion for the country was evident. I was privileged to have this gentleman as my History Degree lecturer and I shall never forget him.

I only dipped into this book when researching Edward I, but I was soon engrossed. Davies is that rare thing - an academic who is also a storyteller. Anyone interested in the history and struggles of Wales should read it.

I never thought I'd rave about an academic history book! It was just what I needed for research for my new book. A detailed but readable history of Wales and its relationship to England.
