For ten years, the battle raged. Thousands of ancient Greece’s best warriors battled their enemies, the Trojans, in a desperate attempt to win back King Meneleus’s beautiful wife, Helen. After a decade of fighting and thousands dead, the Greek forces suddenly fell back. Cautiously the Trojans ventured out of the city walls, where they discovered a giant wooden horse and a messenger. Should they accept this peace offering? Or is the gift horse too good to be true?
