MEDIA REVIEWS
John Barnard Jenkins, former non-commissioned officer in the British Army turned leader of Welsh nationalist paramilitary organisation Mudiad Amddiffyn Cymru (MAC), was the mastermind behind their 1960s bombing campaign protesting British state oppression and exploitation of Wales natural resources in the wake of the Tryweryn scandal, particularly in the run-up to the investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales in 1969. The campaign led to a ten-year prison sentence for Jenkins, but also to increased public awareness of the issues and demand for devolved powers of self-governance which eventually resulted in the creation of a Welsh Assembly. John Jenkins is one of the most iconic figures in recent Welsh history. A reclusive revolutionary, he has been quite guarded about his life and the bombing campaign, and little has been made public until now. This book will finally open the door on one of the most fascinating periods of Welsh history and one of the most intriguing characters involved. -- Y Lolfa
