i wish i could have gotten more into this book. but it was just to complicated for me. some facts were totally interesting, but most of the book lagged and i lost interest.

A superb book....Cartledge offers the gereral reader the fruits of his own rich shcolarship in an accessible form. The Spartans of ancient Greece were a powerful and unique people, radically different from any civlization before or since:a sociely of warrior-heroes who were the living exemplars of such core values as self-sacrifice, community endeavor, and achievement against all odds...this is a must read for the history and general reader.
