Spanish Confrontation with the Incas (reload)

Note: I am reloading this video because the file uploaded in 2007 has for some reason ceased to function. The original shows 8,471 uploads as of the date of the reload. This video shows a recreation - based on Spanish accounts - of the capture of the Inca king in what is now Peru by a small band of Spaniards under Pizarro in 1532. The Spaniards were being held in a palace of the king and were vastly outnumbered when the king and his large entourage came calling. However, they hatched a military strategy which ended with the capture of the king. As depicted, the Spaniards had technological superiority in the form of guns and steel swords. But they also had literacy - which the confrontation demonstrates - an invaluable tool for organization and transmission of knowledge, military or otherwise.
