In the Sixteenth Century the King of Spain issued his soldires with a three-pronged mission: to find gold, spread the word of Christianity and claim new territories for Spain. The Conquistadors, as they were called, did just that, and nothing was to stand in their way. Some say the discovery of the New World is the greatest event in history. This book follows the Spanish Explorers as they unleash their terrifying religious wrath upon the Aztec and Inca empires. A concise and well-written book. Has an index.
