- History and Women

FIVE HUNDRED MEN AND A SINGLE WOMAN AGAINST AN ARMY OF ONE MILLION WARRIORS.

But it was the woman that swung the odds in their favor.

The Spaniards called her La Malinche; she was their translator, the only one who could speak to both the Spanish and the Aztecs, the only one who really knew what was being negotiated, promised or whispered.

She was also Cortes' lover. Her devotion to the man she believed to be a living god changed the course of history.

Her role in Mexican history divides opinion. She is reviled by some as a traitor responsible for the destruction of her country; others see her as the symbolic mother of the nation. The controversy about her rages even today; when 'Aztec' was published in Mexico, it spent four months on the bestseller lists.

Who was she and what was her role in helping Cortes achieve what still seems unimaginable, even today?

The legendary Aztec civilization is here brought to life in blazing color, as the author traces the story of one of the most extraordinary love affairs of history.

It is a story of impossible odds, unimaginable cruelty, breath-taking courage and ruthless genius.

"Once you read Colin Falconer, you'll want to read everything he has ever written ..." - Crystal Book Reviews.
