Sparta was organized as a military state. Its citizens were professional warriors. All trades and the necessary elements to maintain a society other than warfare was performed b y a large servile community made up of subdued or enslaved Greeks, which were called Helots. Spartan youths from age 6-18 were trained in an all-male society to become hardened and capable warriors to the exclusion of all else.
In studying the contribution to Western culture of the Greek City States, Sparta does not receive accolades for their high cultural achievements in art, architecture, philosophy or political enlightenment. Sparta, however, has left an enduring legacy of dedication to duty, discipline, and sacrifice for the greater good. Their example of nobility of arms for a worthy cause has left an indelible imprint of courage and bravery.
