The Spartans – ruthlessly great March 12, 2007

Posted by Al in : interesting,people , trackback

With the film 300 due out shortly, attention has been focused on the Spartans – the people who provided the 300 men who stood between the Persians and Greece. If you’ve ever wondered about where the term “Spartan existence” came from then read this article to find out. The whole nation was dedicated to producing the best warrior males possible, and they lived a life of abstinence, with little or no comfort, and taking only what they needed in order to make themselves better fighters. Such dedication is what defeated the Persians, however Sparta would not have been the most fun place to live.
