Conquistadors

Cortés, Pizarro and the Conquest of America

by Huber, Vitus

In the spring of 1519, Spanish conquistadors led by Herná n Corté s landed in Mexico and in only two years, subjugated the mighty Aztec empire.

Soon, other parts of the Americas also came under Spanish dominion. Vitus Huber takes on the puzzle of how this could happen so quickly and without the support of royal troops. The book takes a fresh look at the conquistadors to show us who they were, how they lived, how they shared their loot, and how the chaotic period of conquest could result into long term colonial rule.
