If it had not been for Owain Glyndŵrs 15-year struggle against overwhelming odds, the Welsh would not have survived as Europes oldest nation. His war is the defining era in the history of Wales.

Yet Glyndŵr is hardly known a cultured, literate warrior who was never betrayed or captured and vanished into history.

No less than six separate invasions were beaten back by Glyndŵrs army of volunteers before he disappeared into history, his family and children either dead or imprisoned for life, but he was never betrayed.

Not for Glyndŵr the brutal public death of Braveheart, nor a grave to desecrate only an immortal legacy of hope and freedom. His war of independence led the way for the success of another mab darogan (son of prophecy) seven decades later, when a Welsh army won at Bosworth Field and the Tudor Dynasty was founded. This book tells us how Glyndŵr came to stir Wales into war, and why his name still resonates today as one of the greatest warriors the world has seen.

Contains 34 colour illustrations.

    My review November 2013

    I knew very little about most of the characters featured in this book before i read it. I had some knowledge of Henry IV , Harry Hotspur and the Percies and Mortimers . This book didn't surprise me much as to the details of this bloody and turbulent time in Welsh / English relations. I would recommend reading this book for those who know little about Medieval history. I would consider reading the authors other works after this.
