Metal statue Spartan warrior with spear.
Sparta Was a Warrior Society
One of the reasons why the Spartan Warriors were so effective is because everything in the nation revolved around the act of war. Unlike other city-states in Ancient Greece, who would engage in various types of pursuit such as trade with other city-states and nations, as well as other professions, everything about the society was concerned with the act of war. This is one of the main reasons why their soldiers were so formidable and effective.
