    When considering the history of Ancient Greece, the Spartan’s are very likely to be a key part of that history.

    Mr Steve, takes a look at new book from Philip Matyszak, considering that history, that is the first of two books on the subject.

    If you would like to know more about the book and his thoughts on its contents then just follow the link to JJ’s

    That’s an enjoyable review. I have a feeling I’m going to enjoy your review a lot more than the actual book.

    Tired is enough.

    Thank you for your comments, I enjoy Philip Matyszaks style of writing and have bought a number of his books over the years. This one is a good review of the early years of Sparta and whilst it might lack a little in-depth detail on the more common aspects such as the Persian Wars and the later Peloponnesian War in Book 2 it is well written and the narrative flows well. I specifically bought both books to learn about Sparta outside of these two events as I didn’t need another re-telling of already familiar history.
