The EPIC Battle of Salamis
Listen to me we should fight them at Salamis!
480 BCE- Themistocles and the other greek commanders argue where the fight should happen
No Themistocles, we don't want to fight there.
Later this evening when the other generals went to bed...
The others won't fight like this...
The Persians need to attack us here, then they will fight!
I have got a brilliant idea how to make the Persians attack
"Themistocles secretly left the assembly, and sent a man by boat to the Median fleet after ordering him what to say" -Herodotus
Themistocles sends a slave to Xerxes, the Persian king, with an urgent message...
Go to Xerxes and convince him that now would be the best time to attack the greeks
At the Persian camp...
Xerxes, oh king, the Greeks are weak, attack them now and you will crush them!
Their army is weak my ships will cause a quick end
Hmm, Yes we will defeat them with our strong ships.
Yes Xerxes, you will win and will help you by commanding five ships!
Artemisia did you hear this?
The next day on Themistocles' ship...
Themistocles the Persians attack with their 600 ships!!!
My plan worked...
Do not worry, we may only have 300 triremes, but we are faster
Furthermore we also know the terrain around salamis much better
