Conquest: Montezuma, Cortes, and the Fall of Old Mexico
by Hugh Thomas Year Published: Challenging
A fascinating and in depth account of Hernan Cortes's conquest of the Aztec empire. Going into more detail than Conquistador by Buddy Levy, Thomas provides more background information on the subject. While it may not be as "fun" as Levy's account of the fall of the Aztec empire, it nevertheless is just as engrossing, albeit for a more advanced reader.
