The Trojan War: A Very Short Introduction

Eric H. Cline

Very Short Introductions

  • Brings together all of the evidence available from archaeology, Hittite texts, and Greek legend to investigate the question of whether the Trojan War was a real historical event and whether the site of ancient Troy has been found
  • Challenges the assumption that Helen's abduction was the cause of the war
  • Offers a concise yet original perspective on a timeless epic of love and war, rivalry and greed, heroes and cowards
