Helen, Achilles, Hector, Agamemnon, Odysseus, the Horse: perhaps the best-known cast of characters from any event in world history.
From “the face that launched a thousand ships” to the most famous military ruse in history, the epic showdown between the Greeks and Trojans serves as one of the fundamental narratives of Western culture. Yet, nearly everything we know of it comes from an oral tradition recorded hundreds of years after the fact.
How much do we really know about the war? How much of our received knowledge is based on fiction? Is there any way to know for sure? What is THE TRUE STORY OF TROY?
With stunning graphics, gorgeous location filming, and the expertise of foremost scholars, this feature-length documentary explores in exquisite detail the legend and reality of the Trojan War. From the archaeological trenches of remote Turkey to a US Army war room, from the pristine shores of the Aegean Sea to the world’s great libraries, no clue goes unexamined as we separate fact from fiction.
Like a factual, analytical Iliad, this magnificent program from THE HISTORY CHANNEL® presents its own definitive narrative of the timeless events of Troy.
