Two episodes from the 'History of Warfare' series, 'America: Discovery To Revolution', which looks at the birth of the United States. 'Discovery and the Spanish Presence' tells the story of the early Spanish conquistadors and their insatiable pursuit of fame and fortune in the New World. Chasing stories of cities made of gold and the fabled fountain of youth, many Spanish adventurers lost their lives - and took the lives of countless natives in their hunt for treasure. 'The French Frontier' shows how, having witnessed the success of their rivals, the French decided that they too would claim a piece of this new territory and set about establishing themselves as a force to be feared and respected.
