The Tale of Troy tells of the last great adventure of the heroic age. It is the story of Helen and the judgment of Paris; of the gathering of the heroes and the siege of Troy; of Achilles, reared by the Centaur on wild honey and the marrow of lions; of Odysseus and the great strategy of the first Wooden Horse and of his many adventures on his long journey home to Greece.
These legends have been told again and again, passed down for over three thousand years. In this masterly retelling, they are as vivid and exciting as ever.

About the Author
Roger Lancelyn Green (1918-1987) became interested in myths and legends at an early age. Frequently absent from school due to illness, he spent his time browsing through the books of the magnificent Queen Anne library at his home in England. He loved fairy tales, adventure stories, and traditional legends from around the world. While at Oxford he made a special study of fairy tales and myths. He published a large number of books, but it is his skill as a master storyteller that gives the tales their freshness alongside their familiarity.

This book told me a lot about the War of Troy. I really loved it because sometimes mythology is pretty cool. I did not know much of anything about it before besides the fact that the Greeks duped the Trojans with a big wooden horse. I don't know how well that would work nowadays...
