Publisher's summary Edit
Long, long ago on the great plains of Asia Minor, two mighty armies faced each other in mortal combat. The armies were the Greeks and the Trojans and the prize they were fighting for was Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world.
To the Greeks it seemed that the city of Troy was impregnable and only a miracle could bring them success.
And then help comes to them in a most unexpected way as a strange blue box materialises close to their camp, bringing with it the First Doctor, Steven and Vicki, who soon find themselves caught up in the irreversible tide of history and legend...

Deviations from televised story Edit
- The book is told entirely from Homer's point of view, meaning many scenes, such as Steven getting wounded by the Trojan soldier, are cut out. Homer also takes on the role of the Greek servant Cyclops.
