A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE
 

PHALANX - In ancient Greece, a group of heavily armed infantry formed in ranks and files, close and deep, with shields joined together and long spears overlapping. This formation was proven effective in many battles fought by the Spartans, especially when they were out-numbered, hence the modern day movie"300" On many occasions, Spartan soldiers were tasked to protect kings on long journeys from thieves, enemies and assassins. If faced with an attack, the Spartan soldiers would form a protective shield with their bodies around the king.
