I think the article is a bit far fetched. Doubtless there actually was a Trojan War, but virtually the only source that describes it is Homer. Seems very doubtful that in the 12th Century BC the Greeks had the same naval superiority they gained years later. The Trojan war was as far away in time from the wars where Athens demonstrated its naval superiority as we are from the time of Columbus.
