The History of the Conquest of Peru – William H. Prescott

The story of the fall of the Inca civilisation in Peru is one of the most astonishing episodes ever to occur in history; and in the skilful hands of William H. Prescott, one of America’s greatest historians, it takes on a new dimension.


Clear selection

The narrative positively seethes with detail, drama, as the astonishing achievements of Pizarro and his small band of Spanish Conquistadors are vividly described.

Prescott pays great attention to the Inca civilisation, richly depicting the Inca Empire before it was contacted and then conquered by the ruthless Spaniards.

This is one of the greatest and most riveting events in all history, retold by one of the great masters of historical narrative.
