Osprey Special Editions (Military) : Aztecs and Conquistadores : The Spanish Invasion and the Collapse of the Aztec Empire

The Spanish conquest of Mexico was a remarkable military expedition that had a huge impact on the history of the world. Hernán Cortés led the expedition, the aim of which was the addition of Mexico to the Spanish Empire, and the extraction of Aztec riches. Following the appearance of portents, the Aztecs were expecting a catastrophe in 1519, and the Spanish invasion fulfilled this expectation. Although they fought fiercely to the end, the Aztec civilisation was doomed, and the face of Mexico would be changed for ever. This book examines the campaign, but also the lives, training and experience of the men on both sides, the Spanish conquerors and their opponents, the exotic Aztecs, who were fighting for their lives and their civilisation. Text by John Pohl and Charles M Robinson III with illustrations by Adam Hook and Angus McBride.
