Full description for The War That Killed Achilles
"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 Achilles" is a superb and utterly timely presentation of one of the timeless stories of Western civilization. As she did in "The Endurance" and "The Bounty," "New York Times" bestselling 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.
