The Battle of Thermopylae is not only one of the most famous from the ancient world, but also one of the most famous known to people around the globe today. The Persian Army was looking to invade and conquer Ancient Greece which consisted of a loose confederation of city-states. Sparta was the leading military force among those city-states and sent is elite Spartan warriors to meet the Persian Army.
With a supporting cast of roughly 7,000 Greek soldiers from other city-states, the 300 Spartan warriors marched to the hot gates of Thermopylae where the geography of the region would force the 150,000-man Persian Army into a narrow funnel. Here, the Spartan warriors would eventually make a last stand when their rearguard was compromised and fight to the death trying to kill as many oncoming Persians as possible.
