Who was involved in the Trojan War fighting?

In the Iliad, the Greek Catalogue lists twenty-nine contingents under 46 captains, accounting for a total of 1,186 ships. Using the Boeotian figure of 120 men per ship results in a total of 142,320 men transported to the Troad. They are named by various ethnonyms and had lived in 164 places described by toponyms. The majority of these places have been identified and were occupied in the Late Bronze Age. The terms Danaans, Argives and Achaeans or the sons of the Achaeans are used for the army as a whole. In his Library, Apollodorus lists thirty contingents under 43 leaders with a total of 1013 ships, Hyginus lists 1154 ships, although the total is given as only 245 ships. ***The Catalogue of Ships (Ancient Greek: νεῶν κατάλογος, neōn katalogos) is an epic catalogue in Book 2 of Homer's Iliad (2.494-759), which lists the contingents of the Achaean army that sailed to Troy.

Why was Pearl Harbor great but not total?

During World War II, the Japanese victory at Pearl Harbor in December of 1941 was indeed a "great but not total" victory. Its immediate shortcoming was that, for all its success, it did not knock out the base entirely: within days it was fully functional once again. A longer-term result of the victory was that it galvanized the American fighting spirit: America went to war without any doubt that a full and dedicated effort would be necessary -- and fitting.
