If you want to discover the captivating history of the Battle of Thermopylae, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!The Battle of Thermopylae is one of the most famous battles in human history. It featured two of the ancient world’s most prominent cultures, the Achaemenid-led Persian Empire and the fragmented yet culturally advanced Greeks. It also included some of history’s most famous leaders, such as the Persian king Xerxes and the Spartan king and military general Leonidas. This glorification is apt only because the battle was indeed an important moment in the much larger conflict known as the Greco-Persian Wars. However, the Greeks lost this battle. In fact, it was a slaughter. Had it not been for some good fortune as well as an advantage in terms of equipment and fighting techniques, the Battle of Thermopylae could have gone down in history as the beginning of the end for one of the world’s great civilizations. That these soldiers were more willing to die than to surrender to the evil Persians is part of the reason why this battle has become so famous. It serves as a symbol of what people will do to protect their freedom and their homeland. Sure, much of our memory of the Battle of Thermopylae is glorified untruth, but no one can deny that the Greeks and the Persians, in late August or early September of 480 BCE, fought one of the most important battles in one of the most important wars of the ancient era.In The Battle of Thermopylae: A Captivating Guide to One of the Greatest Battles in Ancient History Between the Spartans and Persians, you will discover topics such asLeading up to The Battle of ThermopylaeThe Main Characters of the Battle of ThermopylaeGreece and Persia Prepare for BattleThe Battle of Thermopylae: Seven Days to Last the Test of TimeMeanwhile, at ArtemisiumAfter the Battle of ThermopylaeThe Greek and Persian ArmiesAnd much, much more!So if you want to learn more about the Battle of Thermopylae, scroll up and click the "add to cart" button!
