AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A humorous take on the origins of the Trojan War, Five Ways to Start a War tells the story from the differing perspectives of five key figures. The stories interweave to paint a colourful picture of meddling deities, confused mortals, conniving kings, and a bed-hopping prince terrified of losing his royal member to divine vengeance. Helen attempts to avoid the inevitable catastrophe, yet finds that vain goddesses don’t often accept no for an answer' (Michael Goldsmith, Vilutheril).
