Summary "More than three thousand years ago, two armies faced off in an epic battle that rewrote history--the Trojan War. The Iliad, Homer's legendary account of this decade-long ordeal, is considered the greatest war story of all time and one of the most important works of Western literature. In this thoroughly researched and artfully rendered graphic novel, renowned illustrator Gareth Hinds captures all the grim glory of Homer's epic. Dynamic illustrations take readers directly into the battle and lay bare the complex emotions of the men, women, and gods whose struggles fueled the war and determined its outcome. Paris, prince of Troy, has stolen the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen of Sparta. To get her back and take revenge, the Greeks assemble a fleet of a thousand ships to conquer Troy. After nearly a decade of fighting, will a falling-out between the greatest Greek captains, Agamemnon and Achilles, offer hope to the Trojans--or doom them all? This companion volume to Hinds's adaptation of The Odyssey features notes, maps, a character key, and other tools to help readers understand all the action and drama of Homer's Iliad."-- Book jacket.
