Since my father died, I want to complete his goal. We should gather an army of 180,000 soldiers. How hard can it be to beat the Greeks?
Let's cross Hellespont and build a bridge there using boats.
Nope, not at all. But we have to listen to King Xerxes, we don't have a choice.
Do you guys think that it is a good idea to use boats as a bridge? Wouldn't it be tiring?
Ugh! This is so tiring, how are we going to fight like this?!
e uKing Darius just died so now his son, King Xerxes, is taking over. Xerxes wanted to complete his dad's goal. King Xerxes thought that it was a good idea to build a bridge in Hellespont with boats.
The Athenian navy will fight the Persian navy, and the the Spartan army will fight the Persian army.
Some soldiers started to question why they would have to build a bridge using boats, but they had no choice but to listen to the king.
Hey, I think there is a better place to attack them, I'll show you the way.
The soldiers started to become very tired because they had to cross and walk across so many boats. They started to wonder how they were going to fight like this because they were so tired.
The Greek army and navy started to plan. The Athenian navy will fight the Persian navy and the Spartan army will fight the Persian army.
A Greek traitor stepped in and told the Persians that there is a better place to attack the Greeks. So now the Spartans are trapped.
The Spartans tried to prevent the Persians to get to the navy. They fought until their weapons were broken, and then they would fight with their bodies. Until all of them died. Sadly, the Persians won this battle because of the Greek traitor.
