Written by Bernal Diaz de Castillo in 1521, this is a first-hand account of the Spanish military incursion into Mexico by Hernan Cortes and his army and their complete annihilation of the Aztecs. "One of the finest adaptions in the CI catalog, and the text is matched by the superb cover and interior art by Premiani (artist of DC's Tomahawk and Doom Patrol)."
"This was a pet project of scriptwriter Alfred Sundel, an expert in pre-Columbian history and culture, who also wrote the World Around Us issue on the Conquistadors, For Gold and Glory (1961) and A History of the Mayas and the Aztecs and Their Conquest in 1967. This historical detail is unsurpassed in the CI Catalog." From the introduction by Classics historian William B. Jones, Jr.
