The Conquest of New Spain (Classics)
The Conquest of New Spain (Classics)
by Bernal Diaz del Castillo
Edition: Paperback
Price: 10.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fascinating!!, 1 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I was about to buy this book, I was afraid that it would not be very precise or impartial, as it was written by a Spanish soldier that took part in the conquest of the Aztec Empire.
However, Bernal Diaz explained that it he himself wrote this book at the age of 70 (yes 70!) because he thought other writers would change the facts and exaggerate in the deeds of the Spanish people!
It's not tiring to read nor annoying and he writes in such a lively way that it seems we are living that dream of the discovery of New Spain !
