"Drawing heavily on both Spanish and Aztec sources...Levy gives a straightforward telling of the entire story.... Well-written.... Highly recommended." ( Library Journal)

It judges historical events from the perspective
of a modern man. It doesn't consider the fact that it was a war and a conquest, and they were warriors and not philosophers, no mercy was expected or given by both parties. But the writer takes the simplistic approach of considering the conquistadores just as bloodthirsty thieves, ignoring how they risked their lives (which many lost) into the unknown and always greatly outnumbered and thousand of miles away from any friendly city or post, and how they combined bravery and military and diplomatic events to win the war.
