This wonderful book is written with love and passion for Welsh rugby, as well as unstinting dedication to detail and the visible legacy of ten years of research. It stands as a monument, not only to thirteen Welsh Internationals killed in the Great War, but also to the early decades of rugby in the Principality, including the first Golden Era of Wales rugby. The author writes with the intimate familiarity and affection for the game of one who is himself a distinguished player.

As Internationals the players featured are well documented in contemporary press reports, so the book is a rich account of their playing careers. But, despite many playing in the same matches, Prescott skilfully avoids repetition. There is abundant social history, with reminders that the Welsh game had a different class structure from the game in England and Scotland. The wartime careers and deaths have also been deftly researched and the stories are well told. The book is comprehensively illustrated: those photographs both assist the narrative and establish the volume's status as a true 'memorial book'. Highly recommended for any rugby fan of whatever hue the shirt.

The story of the 13 Welsh internationals who perished in that terrible conflict is told with sensitivity and meticulous scholarship; a great read for those interested in Welsh history.

Careful, caring, considered, detailed and deliberate. All you would expect from a decade of Gwyn Prescott research, and a worthy and timely tribute to those who died (and those who survived). Thoroughly worthwhile and beautifully realised.
