They were the finest fighters of the ancient world. Their bravery and
skill helped preserve Western Civilization in the face of a massive
invasion from the east. Concepts they developed, like the boot
camp/military service and frontal assault, remain fixtures of military
life and tactics to this day. Along with the Athenians with whom they
fought a decades-long war they helped to shape, advance and preserve the
glory that was Greece.
Spartans: The Rise And Fall explores every aspect of Spartas warrior
culture, lifestyle, history and legacy. Author Steven Pressfield,
(Gates of Fire) reflects on the significance of the Battle of Thermopylae,
where a force led by 300 Spartan warriors stalled the advance of the
Persian hordes (believed to be the largest army ever assembled) for nearly
a week. Scholars like Barry S. Strauss of Cornell University and Yales
Donald Kagan explore the factors that drove the Peloponnesian city-state
to strive for martial excellence. And ancient accounts explain how
Spartas warriors were trained and detail their prowess in battle.
Note: The CD2 NFO is pretty much the same, no need to post it.
