Summary

''Spectacular and constantly surprising.'' -Ken Burns Written with the authority of a scholar and the vigor of a bestselling narrative historian, The War That Killed Achillesis a superb and utterly timely presentation of one of the timeless stories of Western civilization. As she did in The Enduranceand The Bounty, New York Timesbestselling author Caroline Alexander has taken apart a narrative we think we know and put it back together in a way that lets us see its true power. In the process, she reveals the intended theme of Homer's masterwork-the tragic lessons of war and its enduring devastation.
