In 1519, Hernando Cortés arrived in Mexico to investigate stories of a wealthy empire. What he encountered was beyond his wildest dreams; an advanced civilization with complex artistic, political, and religious systems (involving extensive human sacrifice) and replete with gold. This was the Aztec empire, headed by the aloof emperor, Montezuma.

With just a handful of men, Cortés achieved the impossible, crushing the Aztecs and their allies, and effectively annexing the whole territory for Spain.

One of the most extraordinary stories of conquest in mankind's history, it is told here in the classic account by the American historian W.H. Prescott. Download and start listening now!

    " The history of Peru is fascinating, but good luck powering through; it's quite dense. Prescott's research and clear sightedness astounds on every page. "
