It considers the theoretical and methodological contributions of the new military history. The ways in which the Aztec army unfolded in the Mesoamerican battlefields and all components involved in the war have received a new level of interpretation over the past decades and provide a much closer approximation the reality of warfare in the Aztec world and its neighbors.

Keywords: Aztec war, warfare, military history, Mesoamerica, Aztec army
