Erik Graff
Oct 30, 2015 Erik Graff rated it it was amazing
Recommends it for: Spartan or cultural dynamics fans
Recommended to Erik by: Jim DeVoto
Shelves: history
The recent success of the movie 300 has raised interest in the history of Sparta to a level where it has spilled into the community of World Wrestling Federation fans. Thermopylae (480 BCE), represented in the movie, shows the legendary high point of their culture, the reign of Agesilaos II (444–360 BCE), their fall and the reasons for it.
I read this upon the recommendation of Dr. James DeVoto while editing and indexing his own, yet to be published, book about King Agesilaos II.
