Summary:
Hernan Cortes stands as one of the great Conquistadores of all time, and among the most brutal. His thirst for gold and power led him to Mexico in 1519, beginning a conquest unlike any other in history. Remarkably, Cortes was under strict orders not to engage in any wars of conquest when he was sent to meet with the rulers of the Aztec empire--but Cortes paid no heed to his orders. His first contact with the indigenous peoples resulted in a battle that so terrified the native peoples that they fled into the interior of Mexico. They had never seen the guns, horses, and shiny metal armor of the conquistadors. In approximately two years, Cortes owned the Aztec empire, and their once proud ruler Montezuma was dead. Through brilliant execution, from an often precarious military position, Cortes killed hundreds of thousands of Aztecs and brought down the 300-year-old empire--the first major American civilization to fall to the Spanish.
