War of all wars

Extracts from this document...


War of all wars The sky turned an evil black as the arrows departed the bows of the Centaurs who were in formation at the top of the keep. The castle of Zeus was taking a battering but the battalions of beasts stood firm. The Humans, who were attacking from the North, were overwhelmingly outnumbered yet seemed to be brave. The settlement was on the shores of Athens and the Aegean Sea, the only way the humans were to "win this war of wars" was to attack from the land.
