Description - Who's Who of the Conquistadors by Hugh Thomas

In 1519 Hernan Cortes arrived in Mexico with an army of 600 men. Over the next two years waves of conquistadors followed him, bringing horses and weapons with them in order to brutally subjugate both the Mayan and Aztec empires. In this reference, Hugh Thomas lists everyone connected with the conquest of Mexico, explains the part they played in the conquest, and details their histories, backgrounds and relationships. He draws on material from Spanish and Mexican archives.
