Voices of the Trojan War (Paperback): Kate Hovey Voices of the Trojan War (Paperback)
Kate Hovey; Illustrated by Leonid Gore
R185 R159 Discovery Miles 1 590 Save R26 (14%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

"Tell us again of the wooden horse;
give us an ageless rhyme
of heroes and battles, of meddling gods,
and a city lost to time."
This invocation to the Muse begins Kate Hovey's exquisite rendition of the events leading up to and during the Trojan War -- the legendary ten-year battle between the House of Priam in Troy and the great heroes of Greece and its allies, in consequence of Paris, the prince of Troy, having carried off Helen, wife of the King of Sparta.
Through passionate verse and evocative images, we are transported to the battlefield to witness the war as it unfolds -- from the moment Paris is manipulated by the gods to fall in love with Helen to the final maneuver by the Greeks, who enter and vanquish the city of Troy by secreting themselves in a gigantic wooden horse.
In listening to the voices and stories of those ancient Greeks and Trojans who struggled, fought, lost, and won, readers everywhere will be deeply moved and will come to a profound appreciation of the delicate nature of humanity and the futility of war.

The SAS mission conducted behind Iraqi lines is one of the most famous stories of courage and survival in modern warfare. Of the eight members of the SAS regiment who set off, only one escaped capture. This is his story. Late on the evening of 24 January 1991 the patrol was compromised deep behind enemy lines in Iraq. A fierce fire-fight left the eight men miraculously unscathed, but they were forced to run for their lives. Their aim was to reach the Syrian border, 120 kilometres to the north-west, but during the first night the patrol accidentally broke into two groups, five and three. Chris Ryan found himself left with two companions. Nothing had prepared them for the vicious cold of the desert winter, and they began to suffer from hypothermia. During the night one of the men was to disappear in a blinding blizzard. The next day a goat-herd came across the two survivors. Chris's remaining partner, went with him in search of food and was never to return. Left on his own, Chris Ryan beat off an Iraqi attack and set out alone. His greatest adventure was only just beginning. This is the story of courage under fire, of hairbreadth escapes, of the best trained soldiers in the world fighting against adverse conditions, and of one man's courageous refusal to lie down and die.
