Why read it?

1 author picked The War Nerd Iliad as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Don't look for some high-brow version full of pseudo-Shakespearean language. Homer's story is a blood-and-guts tale (literally) of hard-bitten heroes, feuding among spiteful gods and bombastic military commanders. Try John Dolan's version from Feral house publishing, deliberately written as he imagined the story was first told – by soldiers sitting around a campfire exchanging yarns.

From Philip's list on ancient Rome by ancient Romans.
