Description

The Spartans were the only full time army in ancient Greece and were a truly elite force. The state was dedicated to creating superbly trained soldiers. It was these Spartan hoplites that would face the Persian Empire at the pass of Thermopylae. If not for these superb warriors it is likely that the Persian king would have conquered Greece and altered the course of history.
