The Battle of Thermopylae

So uh for those of you who maybe don't know about the Battle of Thermopylae you can check out the Wikipedia entry if you want. Basically the deal was that there were 300 Spartan soldiers defending a pass from the advancing Persian hordes (historians disagree on what the real numbers of the Persians were, but it was probably somewhere between 200,000 and 1.7 million). The Spartans all died, but not before killing at least like 25,000 Persians and allowing the rest of the Greek army to retreat. Pretty badass amirite?
