A fact that is all too clear

Any additional comments?

It is fascinating to write the strong history superiority that is described by the author and the views of the Spanish conquistadors towards the Incas that were possible during this period of history and to recognize how these circumstances shaped the type of history that was written during this period, a fact that is all too clear to overlook.
