Ep. 24: The Military

The Inca would expand their borders in many ways: gift giving, strategic marriages and alliances.  But their military would also come to dominate the Andes as well as the western coast of South America thanks to Tupac Inca Yupanqui.  We’ll look at what the command structure looked like within the Inca army, what took place before the army set out on campaign and how they would engage in a battle.

“With deadly accuracy, a Canas slingman hurls stones the size of golf balls. Incas used such weapons in imperial conquest and in defense against the Spaniards.” – Loren McIntyre in The Incredible Incas and Their Timeless Land.
