A marvellous, superbly illustrated retelling of two great epics - Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, following the fortunes of Odysseus, the craftiest of the Greek commanders. Interspersed with the story are pages of fascinating information about the true history of Troy, illustrated with photographs, maps, and Peter Connolly's unequalled reconstructions. Together, the two parts add up to more than the whole, and bring Homer's epics triumphantly to life. First published as The Legend of Odysseus, this book, which won the T.E.S. Information Book Award, is now reissued with a new title.
