I recomend reading "Gates of Fire" by Steven Pressfield. It is a novel about the last stand at Thermopylae and the tale about those events and what goes on ine Lakedaemon are told through the eyes of Xeones; a battle squire from Astakos. It is a very good read and I heard it will be made into a film in a couple of years.

Hi,

I'm new here.

I read it and it's excellent. I loved the insight into battle it provided the reader with. Not a romantic version of events but you felt the sweat, blood, and terror that is war.

Hello and you are very welcome here.

Yes that is why I loved it so much. It was very realistic and I felt as if I was actually there. It was amazing.
