the athenians sent help for the anatolians but lost and now the persians were mad
athens sends help
battle of marathon
the athenians knew how strong the persians were and decided to sneak attack them so athens won the battle of marathon
battle of thermopale
the spartans tried to block off persian supplies but when a traitor told the persians a secret route to surround the spartans, leonidas dismissed most of his troops while him and 300 other spartans lost in a fight to the death
the athenians outsmarted the persians again by leading them through a narrow strait, the athenian ships could outmaneuver the persian ships allowing the athenians to sink 300 ships. but sadly the persians won and burnt down athens
good luck moving persian clods!
battle of salamis
the greeks ALL OF THEM banded together to defeat the persians
battle of platea
the fall of persia
all people need to tax 1000 units to buy me a new trireme!!
sadly persian leaders taxed the people to gain luxuries rather than better the state and alexander the great conquered them
