Editorial Reviews

How much is truth, how much myth, in the strange world, reminiscent of Middle Earth, which Homer created in the Iliad? Lasting over a decade, the Trojan War began in 1193 B.C. after Prince Paris of Troy stole away Helen from her husband, the King of Sparta. The Greeks waged a bloody war with their entire army on Troy. Eventually, it was a wooden horse that brought doom to the once great city-state. A war that was started because of the love between a man and a woman, that to this day is one of history’s greatest stories. The story of the siege of Troy is an irresistible combination of myth and legend. But how much of this extraordinary story is spiced with fact?

• Troy - where the affairs of men are said to have become entwined with the will of the Gods.
• Troy – where the love between a man and a woman sparked a war that lasted for ten years.
• Troy – where a wooden horse brought doom to a once-great city.
• Troy - what is truth, what is legend - and how do we tell them apart?

5.0 out of 5 stars Troy DVD March 19, 2008
Format:DVD
I purchased this doccumentary to use as an introduction to The Odyssey in my High School English classes. It was a very good illustration of the art and the area in those times. The fact vs. reality aspect lent itself to some interesting discussions and activities, and overall it was an excellent addition to the classroom. You know it's a good show when the students talk about it and mull it over outside of class... and that is what happened with this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trojan War May 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Several similar video pieces are used in my classroom to supplement the Trojan War taught in English 9, Latin 1, and Latin 3-4 Vergil. For example, we are able to take this DVD and show a clip of the Trojan horse and compare it to that scene in Bk 2 of Vergil's Aeneid. This DVD arrived in excellent condition on time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did they not verify their information? March 27, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was excited to see this item as I am a Trojan war fan, and the majority of reviews were positive. The lone holdout for this item had an issue with the fact that Helen was called the daughter of the Spartan king (which she was) and also the wife of Spartan king Menelaus (which she was, as her 2 brothers had died and she was the heir, her sister Klytemnestra already being married to the Mycenae king Agamemnon). So I went ahead and purchased the items with a clear conscience. Several teachers touting this item as an introduction to The Iliad or The Odyssey?. Sign me up!

The information provided by the "Classical Historians" is spot-on, and I have seen several of these experts in other documentaries about the Trojan war. However, the narrative does have several glaring errors, which probably made those historians wince when they saw that they were part of this production. One is that they jumble up the story of Chryseis (not even mentioned) and Briseis, and then they declare that King Priam was murdered before his son, Prince Aeneas. Really? Then the narrative says that Apollo guided Paris' arrow to kill Achilles, and then that Apollo was on the side of the Greeks a few minutes later.

I did not loathe this item; there is a definite lack of material on this age, and there was new information provided that I had not learned from other articles (for instance, that archaeological digs had located a large lower town that could have swelled the town to Homeric proportions), but the omissions and errors were too much. It is a fair introduction to the period, but I fear that this information will just be ingested by the viewers and they will leave this piece having "learned" too much bad information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Myth or Reality April 26, 2008
Format:DVD
Great question. This DVD has caused me to question what I regarded as fact. This DVD left such an impression I caught myself talking to others about it two days later. The story alone draws interest. The DVD causes you to remain interested long after viewing it.
