Conquistador: Hernan Cortes, King Montezuma, and the Last Stand of the Aztecs ⫸ Zero dollar ↠ Conquistador: Hernan Cortes, King Montezuma, and the Last Stand of the Aztecs ❈ By Buddy Levy ⇲ The saga of Corts, Montezuma, and the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire has been chronicled repeatedly, and with justification, since it is one of the seminal events in world history There is probably no new information on the conquest left to uncover, but it is a thrilling, moving, and tragic story well worth retelling Levy is not a professional historian, but he is a fine writer who knows the material, and he is wise enough to allow the pure excitement and drama of the story to unfold naturally At the center of the tale, of course, are the two protagonists Corts is viewed as an intriguing combination of ruthless ambition, religious piety, and surprising tenderness Montezuma, also deeply religious, was less a man of action than Corts, and his contemplative nature probably sealed his doom As Levy illustrates, this was also an earthshaking clash of civilizations that is still working itself out five centuries later This is a superb work of popular history, ideal for general readers Jay FreemanFor sheer drama, no age compares to the age of exploration, no explorers compare to the conquistadors and no conquistador compares to Hernan Cortes In Buddy Levys finely wrought and definitive Conquistador, the worlds of Cortes and Montezuma collide and come to life Five hundred years after the conquest, the Cadillo and his prey have been made human To read Conquistador is to
