He was involved in the Trojan War:
When the Achaean ships reached the beach of Troy, no one would jump ashore, since there was an oracle that the first Achaean to jump on Trojan soil would die.

In the tenth year of the Trojan War, the Greeks tricked the enemy into bringing a colossal wooden horse within the walls of Troy. The Trojans had no idea that Greek soldiers were hidden inside, under the command of Odysseus. During the night they left and opened the city gates to the Greek army. They destroyed Troy. Odysseus and the other Greeks returned to their kingdoms. Odyseeus was most famous for contributing in the strategy of the Trojan horse shown below.
