Review: The Conquest of New Spain

User Review  - Christina Packard - Goodreads

This was a slow 32 hour read on my Kindle. It was simply written of the 119 battle plus adventures. I read it because it was on the 1001 book list, but I do not see the ordinary pleasure reader to want to read this long account. Read full review

Review: The Conquest of New Spain

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
