Synopsis: Until recently, only a few leaders were well known among the Spanish warriors who brutally subjugated the Mayan and Aztec empires of Mexico. Now over 2,000 biographies shed dramatic new light on the conquistadors who made 1519-1521 the bloodiest two-year period in the Western Hemisphere. The world's leading authority on the subject tells who they were, what roles they played, their histories, backgrounds, and relationships, based on previously unpublished material in both Mexico and Spain.
About the Author: Hugh Thomas has written numerous histories on the Spanish speaking world, including The Spanish Civil War, for which he won the Somerset Maugham Prize in 1962, Cuba or the Pursuit of Freedom, The Conquest of Mexico and The Slave Trade. His book The Unfinished History of the World won the first National Book Award for History in 1980. Hugh Thomas was chairman of the Centre for Policy Studies 1979-89 and was awarded a peerage as Lord Thomas of Swynnerton in 1981.
