Sir! We are being ambushed by the mighty Persians! They also seem to outnumber us by approximately 200!
We can trap them here! We just need to lure them into Salamis.
As the Persian battles continue on, Persia makes a move. They send a fleet in of around 500 men, while the Greek's at that time had approximately 300. Therefore, there was little luck for the Greeks.
Wait a minute...
Although previously frightened, King Themistocles had a plan. His experience could prove to be beneficial. He planned on trapping the Persians in the narrow channels of Salamis so they couldn't retreat or go back in any way.
As the Greek boats started to retreat, the Persian boats started to enter. After the Persians had committed enough, it was time for the battle!
As the battle begun, it was clear the Persians' had made a mistake of getting lured. The Persians' had been caught off guard and were in enemy territory.
All the Greeks needed now was time. The Persians at this point were tricked, lured, at the disadvantage, and couldn't retreat, all thanks to King Themistocles.
As the battle ended, the Greeks had proven to be victorious. They had defeated the most feared army around due to quick, accurate thinking.
