De l audace et encore de l audace et toujours de l audaceFirst this makes every high fantasy adventure novel out there seem like rather thin gruel It is easy to imagine it larded with appropriate conversations and lurid description to make it three or four time the size and then selling a gazillion copies as a story of a group of ruthless fantasy adventurers overthrowing an evil empireSecond it is lucky Osama bin Laden I assume never read it since it is practically a textbook example of how to go about overthrowing a decadent and evil civilisation Sure a technological advantage helps acts of terror an unshakeable confidence in the rightness of your cause but above and beyond this Cortes emerges as a master of the techniue of divide and conuer skillfully finding and exploiting the fractures in the Mexican Empire to his own advantage He has absolutely no compunction against lying to the heathens or his own men he is always ready to promise anything to anyone And then there is the audacity Cortes realises that the only way to succeed is to keep moving forward if for once you hesitate if for once you let the enemy know your weakness then you are lost The only way is onward attack attack attack Burn the boats and cast the die and maybe it is still a one in a million chance that you will be master of the greatest city of a continent its streets and canals choked with unburied dead but that is the oly way to have any chance at all And as Terry Pratchett never tires of telling us a one in a million chance is practically a certainty

When we saw all those cities and villages built in the water and other great towns on dry land and that straight and level causeway leading to Mexico we were astounded These great towns and cues and buildings rising from the water all made of stone seemed like an enchanted vision from the tale of Amadis Indeed some of our soldiers asked whether it was not all a dream It is not surprising therefore that I should write in this vein It was all so wonderful that I do not know how to describe this first glimpse of things never heard of seen or dreamed of before p 214This translation is an abbreviated version of Bernal Diaz del Castillo s account of the conuest of modern Mexico starting from landings on the coast in Maya areas Most of the text is taken up by the conuest of the Aztec Empire and occasionally interrupted by troubles with potential colonial rivals back on HispaniolaIt is a breathless account of a culture clash between the Castilians with their horses steel weapons and armour attack dogs artillery and firearms on the one side and the rich sophisticated world of late stone age Mexico on the other As a result the text overflows with details about the lifestyles and peoples the Spanish come across fight against and work with and they would not have succeeded without their local allies drawn from the Aztec s rivals particularly Tlaxcala to topple the chocolate drinking Montezuma view spoilerthe Aztecs though preferred to drink their chocolate cold and unsweetened hide spoiler

Wow This book stands out as one of the most fascinating books that I can think of The only thing I can fault it for are the doubts about its veracity It certainly reads like an authentic account and if it is what an account History was never so fascinating I certainly enjoyed this book far than A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies and it comes across as far accurate and nuanced The characters really come to life in this account Cort s is captured as a magnificent though ruthless and duplicitous leader He was a superb diplomat who fought no battles than he had to I was surprised to find myself rooting for the Spanish despite the many atrocities they committed They came across as men of their time certainly guilty of much of what has been accused of them though they re not the despicable demons that they re often made out to be Perhaps the best description of their motives is the one D az himself uses We went there to serve God and also to get rich I think my favourite aspect of the book is the insight into how amazing it must have been to enter Mexico at that time to be confronted with an Empire great enough to match any in history but to have it be completely new and unknown I can just imagine how exciting it would be to hear the stories told in person had D az returned to Spain and tell the Europeans what amazing sights could be found over the horizon The other great thing are the little details that D az includes that make his story so much richer The graffiti wars between Cort s and his dissatisfied soldiers the trip up the volcano and politics between Cort s and his men and his enemies
