Publisher's Summary

Most people know about the Battle of Thermopylae, even if they don’t recognize the name. During the second Persian invasion of Greece, 300 Spartans fought against Xerxes I’s forces on a narrow mountain pass. With such cinematic details, no wonder this sensational battle inspired the blockbuster film 300. However, both the film and popular imagination miss many important details about this battle. This concise history sheds light on the thousands of Greek citizen-soldiers who fought alongside the Spartans, forever changing the course of Greek identity and nationhood.

Great Read

The Battle of Thermopylae: 300 Spartans and the Forgotten Citizen- Soldiers who Fought with Them by in60Learning was a good quick read. This was a great telling of the Battle of Thermopylae. It gives many important details that have been left out of other tellings.
