The spartans were a group of elite warriors from ancient greece, located on the island province of Sparta.
Spartan warriors are trained from infancy to be nothing but soldiers. They are to be perfect in every respect and aspect of war, and nothing else. Weaklings perish soon after birth; youth are taught to thieve and terrorize the slave class to harden them; young men are taught to nothing unless it has something to do with the arts of war - Even music and dance are tehre only to help keep step when marching and obeying orders. The result is a man who thinks nothing of danger, expects to win, and creates a sense of dread in his opponents.

Spartans fight in the traditional fashion of the hoplites, carrying a long thrusting spear and a large round hoplon shield. They, like the hoplites, were known to form a formation called a phalanx (A close packed mass of men moving as one to crush their enemies)

There have been both a movie and graphic novel based on the most notable spartan accomplishment in written history.

300 spartan warriors (the personal guard of the spartan republic's current king Leonidas), held back the entire Persian army (massing up to 30.000) in a single tactical position, popularily called a "bottlehead". Eventually, after having held the persian army off for multiple days, devestating the persian morale, they died a martyr death. The martyr death was, without a question, a tactical move. After the death of King Leonidas and his men, all of greece united and fought back the persian army.
Imagine the terror inflicted on the Persian army as they saw 10.000 battle-ready spartans on the march, in regards to what a mere 300 had done.

Mechanically and biologically augmented super-soldiers created by the UNSC that exist in the Halo universe. The SPARTAN-II program began in 2517. Candidates for the SPARTAN-II project were orphaned children. The SPARTAN-IIs quickly became the UNSC's most effective weapon in the battle against the Insurrectionists. When the war with the Covenant Empire broke out, SPARTAN-IIs were equipped with the most advanced mechanized armor to deal with the aliens. The Insurrectionist movement and the war with the Covenant spurred Colonel Ackerson to spearhead the SPARTAN-III project. The purpose of the SPARTAN-III project was to create cheaper, more expendable Spartans at a faster rate. SPARTAN-IIIs were intended for extremely high-risk operations with a high level of secrecy. Once again the Spartans would be taken from orphanages and trained from the age of 6. Throughout the Human-Covenant War, 3 companies of SPARTAN-IIIs would be deployed, one of which became trapped in the Shield World with the SPARTAN-II Blue team after the Battle of Onyx. The SPARTAN-IV project was initiated by Admiral Parangosky after the Human-Covenant War, but instead of children, volunteers from the UNSC were used. Some of the SPARTAN-IVs were stationed on the UNSC Infinity where they participated in several engagements. Throughout all of the SPARTAN projects, the UNSC lists any casualties as MIA or WIA to enforce the belief that Spartans cannot be killed.
Master Chief is one of the only remaining active SPARTAN-IIs.
