Causes of the War The Greeks lived in Ionia, but Persia controlled it...
The Battle of Marathon was a battle in favor of the Persians but the Greeks won the battle by attacking very early and catching the Persians off guard.
When they step off the ships...We kill!!!
The battle of Thermopylae was a smart battle. The 300 Spartans stood their ground while the Atheniens could evacuate their city. All Spartans were slaughtered including Leonidas.
Then we will fight in the shade!!!
Surrender or our arrows will shower upon you until the sun is blocked!!!
The battle of Salamis was a naval fight. The Greeks were outnumbered by the Persians but the small ships and strategy lead them to a victory.
Ok. Seems fair.
Why don't you come into this narrow passage, than we can fight.
The battle of Plataea was a land battle. The winner of this battle was the Greeks. This was a very important battle in the wars.
The war ends and the Greeks have won. However the city of Athens was destroyed and it must be rebuilt. They ask for money from others, and they build a city 2 times better than their original city. The Delian League was created. The Delian League is a promise that Greece will fight Persia under Athen leaders.
