Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Part of the History's Turning Points series, which explores pivotal moments in world history, History's Turning Points: The Conquest of the Incas focuses on the Spanish plunder of the Inca people. In the early 16th century, Pizarro arrived on Inca land with 170 bloodthirsty soldiers in tow. Soon, 90 percent of the Incas would die of debilitating diseases, all transported by the Spanish invaders. The program, recommended for both students and history enthusiasts, uses on-location dramatizations to tell the story.
