Few warriors in the history of mankind boasted the strength of the Spartan warriors. The Spartan Empire was a city-state of Greece that eventually defeated all of the other Greek city-states to become the preeminent power of ancient Greece.
Spartan warriors trained from a very young age. The Spartan Empire used slaves for all of its manual labor, which freed up all of the men of Sparta to begin their training from a very young age. These men were noted for their physical strength and ability to defeat almost any foe, as highlighted by the feats of 300 men at the Battle of Thermopylae when just 300 Spartans took on the massive Persian Army.
