Closest to me on the couch is Barry Cunliffe's Europe Between the Oceans: 9000 BC to AD 1000, which I just bought and haven't gotten around to reading yet. 5th sentence on p. 56 is: "The fame of early Troy owed much to its command of this favoured location.". (I got lucky: other sentences around this one, explaining in detail about the bay that is the location in question, and its importance, are way longer;-).
