We must cut off the persians supplies from getting to Athens and try to defeat them.
The Persians came to Marathon with 600 ships ordered by king Darius. After 3 days of waiting for the Greeks, the Persians decided to load their ships but the Athenians attacked the Persians without them knowing they were there and the Athenians won the battle of Marathon.

King Leonidas of sparta controlled a military force of 7000 soldiers into battle of thermopylae and the spartans cut off the persians supplies to try and defeat them.
Battle Of Plataea
The persians defeated the spartans at thermopylae because a traitor told the persians where the greeks were so the spartans dismissed his troops and kept 300 to fight the persians.
I am a traitor. i will show you where the greeks are.
The Athenians lured the persians in a strait of salamis. The persians ships were too big to move around but the Athenians were small enough to move freely in the strait So they trapped the persians ships and the greeks sunk 300 persian ships. The greeks won this battle.
The greek city states came together to form the strongest army yet. The greeks fought the persians one more time. With over 100,000 on each side the greek has taken the victory against the persian army and the greek city states finally found peace within each other and the persian empire declined shortly after.
