    Also wrote a sequel, The Last Spartans (I think).

    Really? I thought it was a terrible book; poorly written. I think I trashed the copy I had.

    Bob, that's because you didn't understand the language. There are no Towah Laddahs reponding to Fiahs in Tennessee. Probably not a Tiah Fiah on a Cah either.

    And, Thanks Dave, I think my copy is around here somewhere, just a matter of hunting...... Stay Safe....
