Review of Troy: Last War of the Heroic Age by Si Sheppard

Author:  Si Sheppard.
Title:  Troy:  Last War of the Heroic Age.
Publisher:  Osprey Publishing.
Pages:  77.
Price:  $11.49 (ebook).

Overview and Impressions:
Troy:  Last War of the Heroic Age is a summary of Homer's Iliad.  It covers the mythology and history of the Trojan War.  Though I recommend Feagles' Iliad and Odyssey translations.  This Osprey is a good introduction to the subject.

However, I'm a student of classic antiquity.  I already knew the story behind the Trojan War.  If you want more info, read Wood's In Search of the Trojan War or Barry Strauss's The Trojan War:  A New History.
