Osprey are famous for this type of book, and Seckunda's "Spartans" is no exception. Beautifully illustrated throughout, the author outlines the tactics, weapons and equipment used by the fearsome Spartan Army of the classical period. A definate "must have" for anyone interested in Ancient Greek Military history..A WORD OF WARNING !!! THis is the same book as Sekunda's "The Spartan Army" - I know, because I bought both!
