1 pointIn the mood for some education? If not proceed with caution as I am about to provide a brief summary of the Ancient Greek city-sate that was Sparta. Sparta is well known in popular culture thanks to the movie 300 which documents the leadership of King Leonidas in the Battle of Thermopylae, and in fact, the Spartans were indeed know historically for their military prowess. Sparta was a unique city-state in Ancient Greece known for its progressive social system and constitution which placed emphasis on excellence and military training from birth. It is said, that infants would be inspected and if deemed weak or unfit, they would be left to die. Spartans were the top tier of the social system in Sparta who enjoyed full rights as citizens and underwent rigorous training and education from a young age. Even Spartan women enjoyed more rights and equality than anywhere else in the classical world. Spartan infantry were a force to be reckoned with, with some saying that one Spartan solider was worth seven other men of any other nation in battle. Their skill in infantry fighting and combat tactics was stuff of legend making the Spartans one of the most feared military powers in the ancient world. They often employed the Phalanx formation with such efficiency and cohesion that they became a near impenetrable wall of men, shields and weapons. When fighting along side other units in the Phalanx formation, Spartans would customarily occupy the right flank and often defeat their enemies first, allowing them to pivot into the flanks of the enemies still fighting their allies opening a second front and further enhancing their tactical advantage. The Spartans employed a code of honor which included ideals such as no solider being considered superior to another. Recklessness, berserkery and rage were prohibited as they endangered the integrity of the phalanx, and therefore the group. A Spartan losing his shield was a source of dishonor as it too endangered the phalanx and thereby the integrity of the group. In fact, losing a shield was considered worse than losing a primary weapon for that reason the Spartan's weapon and armor is carried for his own protection, the shield is carried for the protection of all. To Spartans, those who fought with calmed determination and the intent to live were considered more valorous than those who fought as if they did not care about deaht. That being said, surviving a losing battle was dishonorable as Spartans were often expected to stand to the last man with the intent to win. This is further reinforced by Spartan women who would often tell their husbands and sons to return with their shields, or on them. And that is why we are proud to pay homage to the Spartans through our namesake here at Spartan Tactical
