Synopsis: Over thirteen centuries of vivid, spellbinding history are encompassed in this intriguing study of the rulers and warriors of the lands of central America. These are charismatic leaders of nations and armies brought to life by the deep research and entertaining storytelling of Peter Tsouras.
The warlords of central America are, for all their fascinating lives and momentous acts, largely ignored by writers and historians, but here that disappointing record is put right by a range of detailed biographies that entertain as they inform.
Students of the area, historians working in American history and long-term visitors and tourists to the region will gain a much clearer understanding of the background history of these territories and the men who formed and reformed them.
From Booklist: The military leaders of the pre-Columbian empires of the Western Hemisphere included a number of distinguished warriors about which little is known and less is available to the general reader. This book begins filling the gap. Tsouras has distilled, from a wide range of sources, accounts of Smoking Frog, founder of the Mayan Empire, of numerous builders of the rule of the Mexica (known to us as the Aztecs), of Motecuhzoma II Xocoyotl (i.e., Montezuma--a bad ruler, by the way), and of the last king of the Mexica, Cuauhtemoc. Relaying their stories, he sheds much light on many intriguing subjects, among them the legend of Quetzalcoatl (both the name of a god and a title) and Native American military technology (cotton armor, it is revealed, was much tougher than you might think). The lavish illustrations almost equal the text in value, and the whole volume is a valuable reference on a subject on which material is not easy to find. Roland Green
