This issue, we’re giving away three copies of The Bronze Lie: shattering the myth of Spartan warrior supremacy, courtesy of Osprey Publishing.
The Spartans were famous for their stoicism and martial prowess. But was this reputation earned? Or was it simply the success of a propaganda machine that had begun working long before the battle at the Hot Gates?
In The Bronze Lie, Myke Cole explores the myth of Spartan warrior supremacy. With a special focus on the major battles, he reveals a series of military reverses that have been left unexamined by history.
The result is a refreshingly honest account of Sparta, which challenges the long-held perceptions of its greatness.
This issue, three lucky winners will each receive a copy of the book.
