From the Publisher
"This superbly written book reads like an adventure story. With epic inspiration, Chaliand conveys both the hopeless situation of the vanquished and the shrewd military strategy of the conquerors."
– Le Figaro Litteraire
"The author narrates the conquests of Mexico and Peru, using Spanish and Indian testimonies, like two great tragic epics, with their human details and grand discourse, all rhythmed by the steps of destiny."
"I find your evaluation of the incredible events surrounding the conquest of Mexico and Peru to be both lucid and well balanced. My congratulations!"
– Letter from Jacques Soustelle, anthropologist
