The Wine of Agamemnon
by John McKiernan
Published: April 28, 2012
Years after the fall of Troy, Odysseus dictates the true story to a scribe.
He tells why it was so important to Agamemnon that there be a war against Troy.
The true cause of the ill feeling between Achilles and Agamemnon.
Why the Greeks' Grand Alliance was broken at the moment of their triumph over Troy.
And perhaps most important of all,
Who the monsters that Odysseus met really were.
