The epic saga from Homer has influenced literature since the day it was discovered. Presented here is a re-telling of the classic epic from the human perspective, rather than from that of the Greek Gods. Covered within these pages are the events that led to the extraordinary Trojan War. Her name was Helen, her beauty was renowned throughout the world. "The face that launched a thousand ships". In this struggle, great heroes, both in glory and in weakness, grapple in a conflict that raged for ten years. As Paris is visiting the Greeks, he becomes smitten with Menelaus' wife, Helen. Taking her to Troy, the Greeks see this as a reason to initiate war against their greatest trading rivals. The Kings of Greece get ready to embark, although most of them reluctantly, and Cassandra, sitting in the fortress of Troy warns that the war will bring disaster but she is cursed that no one will believe her prophecy.
