Plot summary: The peoples of Europe and Great Britain, repressed and impoverished, are drawn to the promise of the Americas. Seeking new conquests, they are the Conquistadors, hence the title. About the author: "Philip Guedalla, (1889–1944) was an English biographer, historian, and essayist. A member of an old Sephardi family, and the son of David Guedalla, a pioneer English Zionist, Philip Guedalla was born in London and educated at Rugby school and at Oxford, where he excelled as a debater and actor, and later became a barrister. During World War 1 he was legal adviser to the ministry of munitions and the contracts department of the British War Office. After ten years at the bar, he retired in 1923 to devote himself to literature and politics. He ran for Parliament 5 times as a liberal... He was a witty speaker and writer. Guedalla's five attempts to secure election to Parliament as a Liberal m.p. failed; but his books on historical personalities and events, mostly of the 19th century, were an outstanding success."
