thanks to you i just had a major history 300 heartattack!!!! i am blown away two comments (a) Leonidas was kiled by 3 Persian aroows not a spear (b) not many people know that it was actually more like the last stand of the 1,200. around 900 other Greeks stayed behind including Denesans and Thebians so there wasnt just 300 Spartans. although it makes a wonderfully bloody battle! i know this comment sounds neggative bitt im a huge Ancient Greek fan and this was good you have to do alot of research to actually figure out what i told you in 3 sentances. P>S> i didnt have a heart attack long live Sparta and Athens!!!!
