Achilles, Agamemnon, Ajax, Diomedes, Hector, Helen, Odysseus, Paris...some of the greatest names in history based on the greatest epic in literature...Homer's The Iliad. Here is a retelling of the classic epic but from the human perspective rather than that of the Gods. Covered are the events that led to the Trojan War and what the consequences were. All the great heroes are here, in all their glory and all their failings. The struggle for Troy was a war that lasted for ten years and the epic saga from Homer has influenced literature since the day it was conceived. The Greeks and the Trojans. They fought over the woman known as Helen, claimed to be the most beautiful woman in the world. "The face that launched a thousand ships". Here is the story of that war...the story of Troy.
