Bernal Diaz, conquistador and author of this spectacular epic, served under Cortes through the entire Mexican campaign. His Discovery and Conquest of Mexico is the only accurately edited and translated work (there being in existence several corrupt versions), and it is basic source history - the material on which W. H. Prescott and others have leaned so heavily when writing of the Spanish conquest. Translated into English from the Spanish by a. P. Maudslay who has also provided an Introduction and Notes.
