Dateline: Troy

author: Paul Fleischman
illustrators: Gwen Frankfeldt; Glenn Morrow

In this updated edition, Newbery Medal-winning author Paul Fleischman juxtaposes his absorbing account of the Trojan War with newspaper clippings of modern events, from the First World War to the War on Terror. As the story unfolds, striking similarities between the world of Homer's Iliad and our contemporary world become clear. Proud Achilles, prophetic Cassandra, crafty Odysseus, and all the rest are reflected in our leaders, enemies, and next-door neighbors they are alive and making headlines.

"Perhaps the ultimate model for making history relevant. . . . A superb and often inspiring work." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
