The Battle of Thermopylae was fought in 480 BC. There was a Greek traitor that had showed the Persians a secret trail that would lead the Persians to have a sneak attack on the Greeks.

His plan did not work and the Greeks won the battle.
The Battle of Plataea was fought in 479 BC. This was the final battle of the Persian Wars. The Greeks, Athenians and Spartans, fought against Persian army in Plataea.
