    If they would have kept the kingdom intact, it would have been so much different today.

    Sadly, this book really only focuses on the spanish conquest, but this is not the fault of the author.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The lack of writing, and the ruthless culling of all things local by the spanish after their arrival, means that the specifics of the inca's history is incredibly sparse pre-conquest.

    As fascinating and unbelievable as the life of hernan cortes, is the story of francisco pizarro and his half-brothers, who conquered peru and founded the city of lima.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The author basically exonerates the incan leadership of any blame for the defeats by pizarro.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The author does not do a very good job of showing the exploitative structure that was the incan empire.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    In fact, the encomienda system was very similar to the incan system.

    Never realized the inca empire only lasted a century, controlled a million people and was destroyed by 168 spaniards.
