      Conquistador Voices, which relies more heavily than most works of this kind on first-person accounts, neither glamorizes nor condemns the conquistadors. Somewhat in the manner of a modern film documentary, it treats the so-called conquest as an historical event that’s worth learning about for its own sake, with most of the moralizing left to. The account, firstly published in Italian in by Giovan Battista Ramuso as part of his work "Delle Navigationi et Viaggi", has been translated to English in Patricia de Fuente's University of Oklahoma Press publication, The Conquistadors: First-person Accounts of the Conquest of Mexico.

Most works have focused on the Spaniards’ defeat of the so-called Aztecs (or more properly, the Nahuas, and those who spoke the Nahuatl language, in particular those who inhabited the city of Tenochtitlan and dominated the Central Basin and surrounding areas).
