Like the author said, this is the battle at Thermopylae, also called the ''Hot Gates'' because of the many hot springs there. It was the only way to get to the Greek cities, so this whas the place where the Greeks could hold the Persians. In this battle, about 6000 Greeks, 300 Thespians and 300 Spartans held the pass for 3 days. At the end of the second day, a traitor came to Xerxes, telling him that there's a little goath pass leading behind the Greek lines. Leonidas, king of Sparta heard that the Persian army finally knew of this pass, and he sent all the Greeks away, but the Thespians refused, and with them, Leonidas and his 300 Spartans made a last stand to give the Greek army time to get away. You lead this 'army', and you have to hold the Persians off for an hour. It is rather an impossible battle, as the Persians will surround you finally.

Additional Comments:
This is the best Thermopylae map I've seen so far, but it can be improved a little. Leonidas wasn't part of the 300, he led them. So the actual numbers of the Spartans came down of 301 men. If you change this, I'll give this map a 5. But for now, I have to give you a 4.5, you deserve it men! Thanks for sharing this great map with us;)

Very good map, the terrain is excellent although the Persians immediately went for the side path... Anyway, out of the 5-6 thousand troops deployed by the Persians, i mananged to kill 4800 although my 300 were slaughtered to the last. The map was very enjoyable.

Additional Comments: Ah, i noticed you had a descr_script.txt thing, if you have any experience in Historical Battle scripting cutscenes it would be great if you could script us some battles for a mod me and a friend are working on. Anyway, if your interested : dinner4me333@hotmail.com
