Summary The epic story of the Trojan War told from the Trojans viewpoint. Arrows rain death. Soldiers clamber up stone walls. Swords clang, fires rage. Yet the waves of combatants storming Troy are repelled. To defeat the undefeatable ultimately requires brains more than brawn. So, feigning retreat, the Greeks offer a gift: a mammoth wooden horse secretly housing their fighting men.
