Caroline Alexander’s new book, The War That Killed Achilles, is not a new translation of The Iliad - she leans . But throughout the book’s battles, Ms. Alexander pointedly observes: No one wants to be here; everyone regrets that the war ever started. Everyone wants a way out.

Caroline Alexander’s new book, The War That Killed Achilles, is not a new translation of The Iliad - she leans mightily (alas, too mightily) on Lattimore’s - but an attempt at a fresh reading of it, one that focuses almost solely on what this martial epic has to say about the conduct and meaning of war. Her book takes a chapter title from The Things They Carried, Tim O’Brien’s collection of short stories about Vietnam, but Ms. Alexander has more recent wars on her mind, notably the one in Iraq.
