A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes

In A Thousand Ships, broadcaster and classicist Natalie Haynes retells the story of the Trojan War from an all-female perspective.

This was never the story of one woman, or two.  It was the story of all of them…

In the middle of the night, Creusa wakes to find her beloved Troy engulfed in flames.  Ten seemingly endless years of brutal conflict between the Greeks and the Trojans are over, and the Greeks are victorious.  Over the next few hours, the only life she has ever known will turn to ash…

The devastating consequences of the fall of Troy stretch from Mount Olympus to Mount Ida, from the citadel of Troy to the distant Greek islands, and across oceans and sky in between.  These are the stories of the women embroiled in that legendary war and its terrible aftermath, as well as the feud and the fatal decisions that started it all…

Powerfully told from an all-female perspective, A Thousand Ships gives voices to the women, girls and goddesses who, for so long, have been silent.

Peer & Press Reviews

Natalie Haynes is swiftly becoming this generation’s Mary Renault; her retelling of the Trojan war from an all-female perspective, A Thousand Ships, is her best yet.


When it comes to ancient Greece, women are usually minor characters in the stories of men.  Here, in this treat of a book, the women take centre stage – and how brilliantly.  A book to both savour and devour.

Suzannah Lipscomb, author of The Voices of Nîmes

Elegant, intelligent…  Haynes combines a wide-ranging knowledge of the original myths with a gift for compelling narrative.
