An epic story that proves that sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, a contact between two alien civilizations. Leading historian Hugh Thomas writes a detailed account on the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire under conquistador Hernán Cortés, who managed to form a coalition with many native allies to overthrow the Mexicas. Conquest also portrays Hernán Cortés and Montezuma with vivid details, and all the events are explained with context, analysis and interpretations.
