Synopses & Reviews
Conquest Of America brings a stunning four-part series from The History Channel to DVD for the first time. A sweeping saga of bravery, cruelty, and pure folly, these are the stories of adventurers who stopped at nothing to conquer an unknown land and its peoples. Led by legendary cities of gold and mythical passages to China, foiled by international intrigue and mutiny on the high seas, men like Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, Henry Hudson, Jean Ribault, and Vitus Bering left an indelible mark on a vast new continent. Conquest Of America presents an amazing, region-by-region account of extraordinary times and extraordinary men, with expert commentary and vivid on-site-re-enactments.
