Trivia Question: The phalanx was a military formation invented by what ancient people?
Answer: The Ancient Greeks
The phalanx was designed to be a mighty defensive formation. It consisted of spearmen who would position their weapons to form what was essentially a wall of shields and spear points. The impenetrable might of the phalanx allowed a number of Greek warlords to conquer vast territories.

I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
