On a dark June night in 1520, Cortes, his hostage Montezuma dead, had to fight his way out of the Aztec capital. Losses were heavy - but within a month he was back to take the city and topple the Aztec empire. This is the original artwork for illustration on p12 of Look and Learn issue no 849 (22 April 1978).
