Most people have heard about the Spartans. Especially Leonidas at Thermopylae. This book puts everything you know about Sparta into context starting from their history in the Trojan War to their days as a tourist attraction for wealthy Romans. Lots of detail about their Historical Legacy and pictures of the area where Thermopylae occurred.

Good work that puts some myths to rest and accurately distributes credit and blame for the rise and fall of Spartan society.

A very good recap of Spartan life and society...learned some interesting side lines and details about this civilization that we don't see in movies. What an honor it must have been to serve with such nobel warriors. I read about these societies (including Romans) with interest so I can compare what is happening to our country (USA) today. History is repeating itself to bad we don't have political warriors willing to forgo their lust for power and do what is right to preserve our society. I recommend Charles River Editors publications.

Excellent book describing the city-state Sparta of ancient Greece. Worth noting that the rest of the Aegean sea municipalities held Sparta in awe because of their military and strict code of living from whence the word 'spartan' comes from. Eventually, history turn of events, about 200B.C. Sparta was more or less destroyed by other enemies and huge armies in the surrounding countries. Sparta set an example of discipline for many future warrior cultures.
