Phalanx

Post  David Strauss on Sun Jan 18, 2015 3:54 pm

A phalanx is a military formation that the Spartans used to have an efficient way to win battles. This will create a really hard wall to break through. This formation is composed by may armed soldiers with spears, pikes, or similar weapons. The men will gather in a rectangular formation and maybe on top of each other to create a wall with their shields and spears in the front so that any men that would attack them will get penetrated by the spears. This was a really smart idea at that era because it gave them the upper hand in a war neighboring city-states. Very Happy
