Fascinating historical document. Diaz isn't an historian, but he was there! Fought with Cortes and kissed the hands of Montezuma! Always he says how the Spanish were killing the Aztecs for god, to ... Read full review

User Review  - Deanne - Goodreads

Interesting to read what a conquistador who knew Cortes thought about the man and what happened when the spanish arrived. I don't expect even this account is 100% the truth, it would take an exceptional person to tell the whole truth especially nearly 50 years after the facts. Read full review

The Spanish pretend to consult with their horses and cannon. Pious catholics who don't live by the Golden Rule, but who live for gold.
