The siege of Tenochtitlan 1521, modern Mexico..Hernan Cortez Konkistador and only handfull of men captured and killed Atztec emperor Montezuma 2 and then with firepower and myth of Quetzalcoatl killed rest of the citys popula...+ the Smallpox what killed 40% of Atztecs....sorry my bad English...
And other is Francisco Pizarros destruction of Incas , finally in 1536 , Cusco, North-Peru....+++ stories , details. etc etc .. BUT The siege of Tenochtitlan 1521, modern Mexico.... belongs to the 100 greatest battle so you have one in south-America... Handfull of men destroyed hundreds of thousend men with sheer arrogance, bold, firepower and myth of Quetzalcoatl .. __ mynthon11
