The History of the Conquest of Mexico

Written by William H. Prescott
Category: · History

The story of the fall of the Mexica/Aztec civilisation in Mexico is one of the most astonishing episodes ever to occur in history; and in the skilful hands of William H. Prescott, one of America’s greatest historians, it takes on a thrilling new dimension.

Richly filled with detail, Prescott intricately describes the complex civilisation of the Mexica/Aztec people, before beginning the compelling tale of their ultimate defeat at the hands of Hernan Cortes’ tiny band of ruthless Spanish conquistadors.

This is one of the greatest and most riveting events in all history, retold by one of the great masters of historical narrative.
