The night before, King Menalaus had walked upto his wifes room and found her missing. He glanced out the window and saw the Trojan longboat pulled out of the harbour. The first ship to strike Trojan ground was that of Achilles. He and his men were battle ready and ready to kill.

Myths and Legends

They jumped off of their boat and ran head on at the oncoming defenders. Achilles looked back and noticed that the other ships only just making the shore. He drew his arm back, grasping him spear in his left hand, and thrust it forward through one mans chest and into anothers. It may have been gory, but it was a throw unmatched.

He directed his men forward toward the wall where more men stood ready on guard. Arrows flew and swords crashed together, as was any war of that time. But this was the Trojan war, the decade that rocked the history books for a millenium, just because of one girl. That is how it went for the ten whole years. By know, Achilles the mighty Greek warrior and all of his men were long dead.

The once peaceful land that many called home now looked like a living hell. The sand was red, peoples wounds were red, the walls of Troy had dead bodies littered around its base. The soldiers were tired, the generals were tired, even Menalaus was sick of it.
