I see on your blog, Graham, that book 3, Night of Sorrows, covers the conquest from Nov 1519 through July 1520. The surrender of the Aztecs occurred on 13 August, 1521. I presume there will thus be a Book 4, and possibly a Book 5? We are all really looking forward to your marvelous telling of this tale!

The Subject matter of War God: Night of Sorrows covers the period from November 1519 to 1 July 1520 during which Cortés and his conquistadors:

(1) enter Tenochtitlan as ‘guests’;

(2) take Moctezuma hostage in his own palace;

(3) defeat a hostile Spanish army (3 times larger than Cortés’ little force) sent from Cuba to snatch the conquest away from them;

(4) There’s an uprising in Tenochtitlan while Cortés is away defeating the enemy Spaniards at the coast; the tiny Spanish garrison left holding Moctezuma hostage in Tenochtitlan is under siege.

(5) Cortés marches from the coast to break the siege with his army now greatly enlarged by incorporating the defeated Spanish invaders, but becomes besieged in the island city himself;

(6) Six days of hellish fighting in Tenochtitlan follow.

(7) On night of 30 June 1520 the Spaniards break out. Around 600 are killed on a 2-mile long causeway across the lake as they attempt to make their escape on this “Night of Sorrow”.

(8) Less than 400 Spaniards survive the battle on the causeway and all are wounded, broken, and demoralised. They are pursued by the Mexica and again under attack. Their only hope is to retreat across a hundred miles of mountains to Tlascala where their ally Shikotenka offers them sanctuary.

War God: Night of Sorrows, the third volume of the War God series, will be published in 2017. Volumes 1 and 2 are already published: [grahamhancock.com]
