All of Greece considered them supersoldiers b/c their phalanx never routed in combat. They often retreated, but never shamefully. That is why they are legendary. And obviously it is due to their entire social, philosophical, financial, and military outlook as recorded by all the ancient sources. Where is the logical proof showing otherwise?

Most of history is probably inaccurate or misrepresented.

Indeed, the Spartans where very good at feinting retreat, only to turn around and re-engage their surprised pursuers. 

 

The most other greek states where petrified of Sparta, that is not a myth. But other than some other descrepancies, that is quite a good video.

Grappling hooks with some good length of rope would have [edited] them up. Hard to hold a line when guys are getting yanked out from under their feet.

How do you make the grappling hooks snag their legs?

 

I cant imagine throwing it would work.
