This program examines the planning and persistence that characterized Hernando Cortes's expeditions to Mexico. With fewer than 600 of his own soldiers, Cortes invaded and conquered the Aztec empire. The video documents the Spaniards' alliance with other native tribes against the Aztec, their contacts with Montezuma, the conquest of Tenochtitlan, and the establishment of Spanish rule throughout Mexico.
