Why read it?

1 author picked Aretes de Esparta (Histórica) as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I don't know if this book has an English version, but it should still be recommended because it is the book that introduced me to the world of the Spartans, their ideology, and their way of understanding the world.

Definitely a must-read if you want to enjoy the exciting world of ancient history.

From Christian's list on the great Spartan Nation.
