In battle, the ancient Greeks established a well-deserved reputation for bravery, discipline, and determination. They were successful because they were well trained, well lead, and most of all, well motivated. The Greeks were master motivators who understood how to instill commitment and prepare their soldiers for victory. To infuse their army with a spirit of commitment, the moment they landed on the enemy's shore, the Greek commanders would give the order to "burn the boats." Imagine the tremendous psychological impact on the soldiers as they watched their boats being set to the torch. There was no turning back. Once their boats were burned, they realized that the only way they were going home was through victory.

I don't think there were any strict measures on how old a soldier had to be in the Ancient Egyptian army. Obviously one would have to have enough physical strength to wi…eld weapons and carry around a soldier's kit, so probably anywhere from the age of 18 and up. There are instances where some royal princes would accompany their father-pharaohs, even though they still wore their hairstyle in the manner of children, i.e. with the sidelock of youth. This could indicate they were still in puberty, as Egyptian males really "came of age" in their late teens or early twenties.
