    Does anyone know of any good general sources on Conquistadors? Alongside that, also any good sources on the Spanish Conquests of the Aztecs and Incas?

    The conquest of the Incas by John Hemmings is good.

    Just use PLAIN tags for a plain text -- [PLAIN]www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-Sp7oavH74[/PLAIN] -- to produce this:
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-Sp7oavH74

    Or URL tags for a link -- [URL]www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-Sp7oavH74[/URL] -- to produce this:
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-Sp7oavH74

    Or maybe like this -- [URL='http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-Sp7oavH74']Click here[/URL] -- to produce this:
