It is 12th century BC and King Agamemnon of Mycenae and his army are in Thessaly, Greece, looking to expand their military might and empire. Rather than suffer great losses, he and an opposing King of Thessaly agree to let their greatest warriors battle. Agamemnon then calls upon the legendary Achilles who easily dispatches his much larger opponent, Boagrius. Agamemnon must call upon Achilles again, however, when his brother Menelaus seeks revenge on the Trojan Prince Paris for running off with his wife, Helen of Sparta. Paris' warrior brother, Hector, isn't pleased to learn of this affair and when he returns to Troy, he urges their father, King Priam, to return the young woman to Sparta. Priam, however, puts too much faith in his high priests and their interpretation of how Apollo will react. Accordingly, and with Agamemnon realizing that a victory over Troy would give him complete control over the Aegean, the Greeks amass the largest naval force known to man and set sail for the foreign land. With them are Achilles and his younger and inexperienced cousin, Patroclus, who have been persuaded by King Odysseus (the only King in Greece whom Achilles respects) and Achilles' mother, Thetis, to join the quest. The Greeks land on Trojan soil and are able to take control of the beach on the first day of the war. Achilles and the Myrmidons always extremely useful in battle are able to not only cause many Trojan deaths, but also desecrate the Trojan temple of Apollo. Notably, Achilles decapitates the statue of Apollo and his men kill two unarmed priests. Briseis, cousin of Hector of Troy, was taken in the midst of the fight and brought to Achilles' tent to "amuse" him. Agamemnon, however, decides to take Briseis from Achilles in order to anger and insult him. Achilles protests, but Briseis' words stop Achilles from killing anybody to take her back. The result of this is that Achilles decides not to fight in the next battle. Menelaus and Paris fight and Paris, though able to knock out one of Menelaus's teeth, is wounded and crawls to Hector for help. Menelaus is killed soon afterwards and the war is back on. During the battle, Hector also kills Ajax, and the Greeks retreat to the beach. Also, the Trojans burn the Greek ships.

Frustrated at not getting a chance to fight, Patroclus takes Achilles' armor when the Trojans attack the beachside camp and a battle ensues. He brings courage to the Greeks as they mistake him for Achilles, and eventually fights man-to-man against Hector. In the fight with Hector, Patroclus is killed: Hector is dismayed when he pulls Achilles's helmet off--a boy--and gives him the coup de grace. When Achilles finds out about this, he is enraged and marches toward the Trojan gates to fight Hector. After engaging in a ferocious spear and sword fight in which Achilles is wounded but finally gains the upper hand, Achilles kills Hector. Achilles ties Hector's body behind his chariot and drags it around the city walls three times, then drags it back to the Greek camp. Later that night King Priam secretly slips into the camp and meets Achilles to plead with him to return Hector's body. Impressed by Priam's courage and virtue, Achilles returns Hector's body to him and allows Briseis to leave with Priam back to Troy. He also assures Priam that a proper amount of time (12 days) is given to allow for a proper funeral service for Prince Hector. During the 12 days that Troy mourns Hector's death, the Greeks devise a plan to enter the city using a hollowed-out wooden horse devised by King Odysseus. Assuming victory, the Trojans, against the advice of Paris, take the horse into the city and celebrate long into the night. After the celebrations, the Greeks hidden inside the horse engage in a surprise attack, and open the gates of Troy to allow the entire army inside the city walls. They commence the Sack of Troy, killing nearly everyone and burning down anything they can find. Achilles starts searching for Briseis; meanwhile a group of Trojans (including Helen) flee the city. Though Priam is killed by Agamemnon, Paris refuses to leave at this time and hands the Sword of Troy to Aeneas, quoting his father by telling Aeneas that as long as the Sword of Troy remains in the hands of a Trojan, the people have a future.

Achilles frantically searches for Briseis, who is at the shrine of Apollo being threatened by Agamemnon. She kills him with a concealed knife, and is saved from Agamemnon's guards when Achilles reaches her. However, Paris sees Achilles and shoots him in the heel (Achilles' tendon) once, and three times in the chest, while Briseis screams for Paris not to kill him. He pulls out the three from his chest, but the one is left in his foot as he passes into death. Briseis tearfully leaves the city with Paris after Achilles assures her that "everything's all right, go." Achilles then delivers those famous last words,"You gave me peace in a lifetime of war." After a last futile attempt by surviving Trojan soldiers to repel the invaders, the battle ends and the Greeks discover that Achilles has died. They perform the funeral rituals for him the next morning. The story ends with Odysseus lighting Achilles' pyre and narrating "If they ever tell my story, let them say...I walked with Giants. Men rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names will never die. Let them say...I lived in the time of Hector, tamer of horses. Let them say...I lived in the time of Achilles".
