“ . . . admirably balanced and judicious, comprehensive and readable . . . It is a singular accomplishment to achieve all this in so small a compass without leaving the reader feeling either short-changed or suffering from chronological indigestion. This volume can be recommended without hesitation both to apprentice historians and to members of the general public embarking on the exciting journey into the Welsh past.” –www.gwales.com

Glanmor Williams | Book News Wales

“Mr Jones was set the formidable task of encompassing the whole story within the space of some 50-60,000 words and has managed it with conspicuous success . . . an excellent study which should give pleasure and profit to a large number of readers.” –Glanmor Williams, Book News Wales

Welsh History Review

“. . . an attractively produced volume . . . Mr Jones's summarization of all this is a singular accomplishment.” –Welsh History Review
