No nation has made a greater contribution to the Lions than Wales. During almost half a century since the end of the Second World War, they have truly provided the lion's share not just of members of the supporting cast but also of captains, coaches, and managers. This book features famous names and recounts prodigious deeds and unforgettable characters, such as Bobby Windsor, hooker in the invincible 1974 team. He and many others, from JPR Williams to Barry John, and Gareth Edwards to Phil Bennett, relive the epic matches and point to the decisive moments in the history of the Lions.

Though not an exhaustive list of every Welsh Lion, this book does have many of the famous and infamous Lions. Well researched, and written in such a way that you need not be a fanatic to appreciate this book. Read full review
