On 12 October 1492 Columbus discovered the New World. In the
following decade a number of Spanish colonies were founded in the
West Indies, many of the settlers being ex-soldiers. They were a
hardy, adventurous and unruly crew, no longer able to find suitable
employment in Europe. They carved a foothold for Spain in the
Indies, but quickly became restless in the role of settler. Anxious
to avoid the dull work of the administrators and planters, these
men began to seek new territories to exploit, once again turning
their faces towards the unknown. This title documents both the
Conquistadores themselves, and their formidable enemies in the New
World - the Aztecs, Incas and Maya.
