Gates of Fire

Nearly 2,500 years ago, in 480BC, three hundred Spartan warriors faced the army of Xerxes of Persia, rumoured to be over a million strong. Their orders were to delay the enemy for as long as possible while the main Greek armies mobilized. For six days the Spartans held the invaders at bay. In the final hours - their shields broken, swords and spears shattered - they fought with their bare hands before being overwhelmed. It was battle that would become synonymous with extraordinary courage, heroism and self-sacrifice: it was Thermopylae.
