ABSTRACT
The article examines the similarities that exist between the hoplite of ancient Greece and the modern U.S. Infantry soldier. It says that geography, culture and more than 2,000 years of history separate the Greek hoplite and U.S. Infantry soldier, and they are said to represent the alpha and omega of the Western warfighter. According to an analysis of the two groups, despite their diametric positions in military history, such congruity does exist, both subtle and profound. The similarities of the two groups in warfare are also discussed.
