Neil Packer's glorious illustrations and Gillian Cross's brilliant retelling bring to life Homer's Iliad, the greatest war story ever told. The team that produced the Odyssey in 2012 now tell the story of the ten year war that preceded Odysseus's long journey home to Ithaca. This faithful retelling begins with Prince Paris's abduction of Helen of Sparta, and goes on to the quarrel between Agamemnon and Achilles, and the great battles under the walls of Troy towards the end of the siege that result in the deaths of Patroclus, the Trojan hero Hector, and finally Achilles himself. Neil Packer's pictures capture the beauty and remoteness of the setting, and bring a profound humanity to what has been called the finest literary achievement of Greek civilisation.
