Helen of Sparta was captured by the Trojans.

Agamemnon and his army of Greeks went to the city of Troy to rescue Helen.

The Greek army made a large wooden horse and left it outside the city gates.

The Trojans took the horse inside their city. They thought it was a present from the gods!

That night Greek soldiers crept out from inside the horse and opened the city gates!

The Greek army poured into the city!
