Black Ships Before Troy - Chapter 4 - Summary

Mar 4, 2012

4 - Single Combat
The High King tested the temper of the army by telling them that they should go home. The army took him seriously, and they were glad to go home, but Odysseus said that if they gave up now they would have wasted the ten years in Troy, so then they got ready for battle. Trojans were happy that Achilles was not among the Greeks, so they came out of their city to fight, led by Paris, who challenged any Greek to come and battle him. Menelaus came forward, and Paris was scared. But Hector made Paris angry and reckless, so Paris and Menelaus agreed on a fight to the death. However, Aphrodite kept meddling, so that both were unharmed in the end.
