Sparta
•   Defenders of Hellenism
•   Two kings at ruling at one time
•   Military state
•   City devoted to military training
•   Equal rights for men and women
•   Supposedly boring people
Spartan Military Life
• “With this, or upon this”
• Everybody starts off with training at age 7
  until 30
• Severe test of grit and strength for the next 8
  years for the boys
• At age thirty they became citizens
• Famous Phalanx formation
The Phalanx Formation
Battle of Thermopylae

                      Xerxes the
Leonidas
                       Great

Force
300 Spartans          250,000 in all
700 Thespians
6000 Other Greeks

                      Casualties
Casualties
                      20,000 dead
300 Spartans
3000 Other Greeks
Only the dead have seen
    the end of war

Go tell the Spartans,
Thou who passest by.
That here by Spartan Law,
We Lie.
What can we take away?
• Nothing can replace training. 5 lions are better
  than 500 sheep
• It’s the team that matters, not the individual
• Use your strength to your advantage
• Use the situation to your advantage
• Never underestimate your enemy
• Never be overcome by you ego
Thank You!!
