Reader recommendation: The End of Sparta

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I am currently enjoying The End of Sparta by Victor Davis Hanson. Although the book is fiction, Mr. Hanson chronicles the real-life story of the General Epaminondas who leads the Boiotians in the initial defeat of the Spartans at Leuktra and the final invasion of Sparta. I had never even heard of Epaminondas before. I suggest that this book is a real find for those who enjoy their history with a well written storyline.
