    1. 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 describ [...]

    2. The author started writing this when he was over 70, made his fair copy of it at age 76, and wrote a preliminary note for it at age 84. Five years later, he was dead.Arguedas's "Deep Rivers" and Galeano's "Genesis (Memory of Fire 1)", which I recently read, both have an unmistakable bias against the Spanish conquistadores of the Americas during the 16th and 17th centuries. Here, for a change, I listen to one of these conquistadores, for the author Bernal Diaz del Castillo was a Spanish soldier w [...]

    3. Whatever you heard about Cortés in grade school is probably true enough, but wow, the details are amazing.Sure, Cortés might have been a deceitful, gold-hungry, womanizing, slave-taking, blood-soaked psychopath (and alleged poisoner), but that's part of what makes him a great character, because he was also a brilliant and charismatic velvet-glove-over-iron-fist diplomat, an incredibly savvy and calculating strategist, and a fervent Christian (lecturing people constantly on the Trinity and reve [...]

    4. This is a 2-volume English translation of Castillo’s memoirs centered on his years with Cortes’ expedition-invasion of Mexico and Mexico City in the 1519-21 period. Castillo was one of the 550 original conquistadors w/Cortes. In his later years he was an official in Guatemala. Castillo wrote his memoirs beginning in 1568 and he indicates towards the end of the book that he is one of 5 surviving original conquistadors.The book approaches 1000 pages. It has 213 chapters. I read it on and off o [...]

    5. Escrito por Bernal Díaz del Castillo, uno de los soldados que participó en la conquista de México, “Historia verdadera de la conquista de la Nueva España” es una excelente fuente histórica de lo que ocurrió entre 1519 y 1521 cuando Hernán Cortés, desobediendo ordenes superiores, decidió comenzar la conquista de la América continental.El libro no es fácil de leer, es muy extenso, está escrito en español antiguo y en un estilo pobre que tiende a ser repetitivo. Sin embargo es uno [...]

    6. 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 more than A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies and it comes across as far more accurate and nuanced. The characters really come to life in this account. Cortés is captured as a magnificent, [...]

    7. The feats included in this book are the substance of legend. Apologists in the contemporary era revel in perpetuating the Black Legend with regard to the Spanish conquistadors — which is largely resultant of centuries of British propaganda in an age of competing empires — but little attention is given to heinous accounts of cannibalism and human sacrifice in pre-conquest Mexico. Granted, this was all going on during the height of the Inquisition, and so many of the writings and traditions of [...]

    8. Got this one from Instituto Cervantes in Manila. A good primary reference for the discovery, exploration, and conquest of the Americas by the Spanish conquistadores, written by one of the members of Hernan Cortes' expedition.A great insight of this book is that while some of the Spanish conquistadores were no saints, the Aztecs were certainly no angels either. They often went to war with the purpose of capturing prisoners to be made into hundreds, even thousands, of human sacrifices for their su [...]

    9. Anthony read this book in college and recommended it to me. I read it during our flights to and from Iceland - and loved it! It gives a first hand account of Cortes and his conquest over the Aztec empire and the defeat of Montezuma. Translated from the diary of Bernal Diaz - a solider who accompanied Cortes - it creates vivid pictures and insight of the trials and successes of the Spanish.

    10. On the spot reportage from 16th century conquistadorSeveral decades ago, as a college sophomore, I was assigned to read Bernal Díaz' work as part of a Latin American history course. The title did not give me much hope. I imagined having to force myself to sit at a desk night after night in order to finish the book. To my great surprise, once I began to read this incredible eye-witness account, I could not put it down. Still, some 50 odd years later, Bernal Díaz' story, as one of the soldiers w [...]

    11. Barclay W. Conrad Book: "The Discovery and Conquest of Mexico 1517-1521" by Bernal Diaz del Castillo Edited from the only exact copy of the original MS Published by Farrar, Straus and Cudahy 1956 Library of Congress No. 56-5758 This book was acquired from my Mother's estate after her death on August 10, 2008. My interest in it was stimulated by the first-person narration of evidence that supports the origin of the "Book of Mormon", the book which was translated by Joseph Smith and published in 1 [...]

    12. 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 empire.Second, it is lucky Osama bin Laden (I assume) never read it, since it is practically a textbook example of [...]

    13. this is a history lesson that stays with you long after you read it. bernal diaz's first hand account as a conquistador is intense and dramatic suspence filled epic, that will leave you breathless. his vivid description of his expedition with the spanish captain cortez in the settlement and pacification of what is now Mexico is action filled extravaganza which reads like an adventure novel. ancient civilations,undiscoverd world , secret chambers of treasure, villians , heros, heroines,. conquest [...]

    14. Bernal Díaz del Castillo's Discovery and Conquest of Mexico is the remarkable chronicle of some of the earliest episodes of Europe's domination of the New World, all told by means of the eyewitness account of Castillo himself. It's a vivid portrayal that conveys as much the entirely justified anxieties of the Conquistadors as they enter and begin to gain supremacy over the cities of Mexico, as it conveys the tragedies faced by, and inflicted on, each side. It's an absolutely riveting tale. It's [...]

    15. One of the most popular and comprehensive primary sources on the Conquest, the work offers a first hand account of the Conquistador's campaign through Mexico and defeat of the Aztecs. There has been some academic debate as to whether or not Bernal Diaz was actually there - as much of the work has clearly been lifted from Gomara's historia - but that debate is (in my humble opinion) still in its infancy. Diaz's account will probably be the most interesting work to lay people and does offer a vivi [...]

    16. This was a slow 32 hour read on my Kindle. It was simply written of the 119 battle plus adventures. I read it because it was on the 1001 book list, but I do not see the ordinary pleasure reader to want to read this long account.

    17. An absolutely astonishing first-hand account of the conquest of Mexico, written some decades after the conquest took place. It’s fair to say that Díaz del Castillo portrays the conquistadores in a more favourable light than they generally receive. Some of the worst excesses during the conquest are either played down or not mentioned at all. He clearly resents some of the criticisms levelled by Bartolomé de las Casas. Díaz does though portray the conquistadores' unbridled greed, often in str [...]

    18. The Conquest of New Spain, Mexico.By Bernal Diaz del Castillo (1495 – 1584)“The true story”, told by the eye witness, as being History as he has seen it and witnessed it.Hernando Cortez is the name of the leader of the expedition, commonly associated with New Spain, and Mexico, the ancient capital of the Aztec Empire.Cortez and his six hundred soldiers, sixteen horses and some light artillery, set out from Cuba in 1519, with orders to explore the continent and to bring back gold and riches [...]

    19. A confession: I didn't read the whole thing.Not to be that contemporary reader, but there is so much "we marched here and it was tough, and then we marched here and met these people, and they said this and we said that, and we slept, and woke up, and then marched here" that I couldn't get through it all.That being said, the book is amazing in that it is Bernal's real memoir of accompanying Cortez on the first European march into Mexico, and Mexico City. I'm not taking the account as gospel (beca [...]

    20. del Castillo was one of the Spanish fortune-seekers who landed in Mexico with Cortez. This book is a detailed chronological eye-witness account of the ensuing encounters with indigenous peoples, culminating in the conquest of the Aztecs. Contrary to what you may have told by social-studies teachers, Cortez's military success was not significantly aided by superstitious belief that the Spaniards were gods (the natives learned early on that they were mere mortals), fear of horses or men mounted on [...]

    21. Sometimes extraordinary events are fortuitously recorded by a well placed participant. In this case, Bernal Diaz del Castillo, describes the 16th century Spanish discovery and defeat of the Mexican empire in an account that is so compelling that it is difficult to put down.The basic facts are not disputed, and reveal the extraordinary military valour of Cortez and most of his men. He gives weight to existing tribal conflicts, the role of religious beliefs and also illustrates Cortez's manipulati [...]

    22. DAMN THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!! Not because it isn't any good. It is flat out fantastic (to be fair, I am a little obsessed with the exploits of Cortes) the problem is that it stops right before Cortes march back to Mexico. Not because Castillo didn't get around to writing it. He did. It just so happens that some A**hole decided to split the work and put the remainder in another bookGH. Now to finish this off.

    23. Interesting but dry history, this book should be rated R for ghastly violence. Too many details of the brutality of the Mexican natives make it a quite depressing read. It is amazing that Mexico was conquered by so few Spanish, but it was due to their horses and guns being novel.

    24. La historia que en este libro se cuenta puede no ser del todo verdadera, pero es un muy detallado relato de una fuente primaria y por ende un documento de gran valía.No me fue fácil agarrar el ritmo de la narración, fue un gran reto terminarlo, pero me place enormemente haber hecho la lectura.

    25. Extremely interesting to see the social, cultural, and religious dynamics play out between these vastly different peoples as they discover each other. The game play of Cortez and Montezuma are also extraordinary.

    26. “Cortes answered with a cheerful smile that neither the Mexicans nor any other nation had the power to kill us, only God in whom we believed, and that we were going to explain to Montezuma himself and all his Caciques and papas what God had commanded.”

    27. Historical record of conquestInteresting reading, if a bit dry considering the subject matter.The best record available on the subject of the conquest of Mexico.
