3.0 out of 5 stars The Spartans Review, 24 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Spartans: An Epic History (Paperback)
An interesting book that seems to suffer from a tendency to lurch from one biography to another and winds up repeating information we've already read, and read and read. It may even have been a series of essays at one point, at least that's the way it reads to me. These essays were then thrown together and finished off with a critique on fox hunting. The rant on fox hunting came at the end and you're left thinking what has that to do with Sparta? I agree with one reviewer in that it seems to suffer from a lack of editing.
By no means a definitive history of Sparta it does provide a summary for those who want to know more about Sparta but due to the disorganised nature of the book I have to give this three stars and I know he can do better with the material he's got, it's just that this book never really lives up to its name.
