A war is a behavior patterned of organized violent conflict, which the causes are extreme aggression, societal disruption and high mortality. It involves two or more groups which has found a conflict which may not be resolved, only through war. In all cases, there is always one participant or group which remains successful at the end.

The Trojan War is a conflict shrouded in mists of myth, fragmented historical evidence and often-inconclusive archaeological clues. The Trojan War was considered as one of the greatest conflicts in Greek Mythology. It was a war that influenced many people in literature and in arts for centuries. This war lasted for about ten years and it was fought between the Trojans and the Achaeans. Troy was a renowned city since it was known for its great defensive walls and its highly aimed and trained archers. It was also known for its great reign by their king, Priam.
