In the long and bitter history of human warfare, the siege plays a particularly savage role, for it is the deliberate punishment through privation of a trapped civilian population. The Siege of Troy is perhaps the most famous siege in western culture, the names of Helen, Paris, Achilles, and Hector still commonly recognized thousands of years after their collective demise. The sacking of Troy ended an intractable war, that had culminated with the ten year siege of the city, cunningly concluded through Greek ingenuity in the form of the famous Trojan Horse. It's a trick remembered and warned against still today, when we say; "Beware Greeks bearing gifts."
