samskivert: Gates of Fire (3)

29 March 2006

A fantastic book about the Spartans and their tide turning showdown against the Persians at Thermopylae. I can’t vouch for the historical accuracy, but the details of life as a Spartan were fascinating. I also recently found out this story is being turned into a film called 300, based on the Frank Miller series of the same title.
