The reason for starting the war was because of Athenian involvement in Lonian Revolt. Darius charged one of his servants to say "Master, remember the Athenians" three times before dinner each day.

The Persian army outnumbered the Athenians by almost 2:1. The Athenians had an advantage,They had superior weapons and training.The Athenians wore all metal.The Persians living in the desert wore leather armor.
The Athenians allowed the center of their battle line to fall back.At the same time they sent the flanks around to surround the Persians.
According to legend, the Athenians ordered the messenger Pheidippides to run ahead to Athens and announce the victory to the city.Pheidippides raced back to the city in intense late summer heat.When he reached the Athenians, he exclaimed “Nike!” (“Victory!”) or “Rejoice! We Conquer” and then collapsed dead from exhaustion.
