    DescriptionThere are two images of warfare that dominate Greek history. The better known is that of Achilles, the Homeric hero skilled in face-to-face combat to the death. He is a warrior who is outraged by deception on the battlefield. The alternative model, equally Greek and also taken from Homeric epic, is Odysseus, the man of twists and turns of The Odyssey. To him, winning by stealth, surprise or deceit was acceptable.
