About this product
- DescriptionThe Spanish conquest of Mexico was the greatest military expedition in history, and in achieving it, Hernan Cortes proved himself as one of the foremost generals of all time. This book explains the background both of the Aztec Empire and the Spanish presence in Mexico. It describes the lives of the Aztecs in their glittering capital and of the Europeans as they learned to adapt and survive in an alien and often dangerous world. The invasion was a war between civilizations, pitting the fatalism and obsessive ritual of the Aztecs against soldiers fighting for riches, their lives, and eventually their souls.
