  • Battle of Thermopylae
    • The Battle of Thermopylae between the Persians and Greeks took place in 480 BC at Thermopylae Pass. The Greek position was a strong one but a Greek traitor Ephialtes showed the Persians another pass resulting in the Greek line being turned. The Greeks had to withdraw and Leonidas I of Sparta used his men as a rear-guard to allow the rest of the army to escape. All 300 Greek men perished carrying out their task, but the army did escape. The Greeks withdrew behind the wall built across the isthmus to Corinth with the Persians following. The next encounter was at Salamis.
    • Another battle which took place at Thermopylae was in 191 BC between the Syrians led by Antiochus III and the Romans. A similar action took place and the Syrians (and Hannibal who was Antiochus' aide) were defeated.

  • Battle of Salamis
    • In 480 BC the Persians, under Xerxes, invaded Greece and took over most of the country up to the Isthmus of Corinth. The galleys of Xerxes navy were up against the triremes of Themistocles navy. In a cunning manoeuvre Themistocles managed to entice the galleys into the waters off Salamis where they were unable to manoeuvre properly. The triremes then attacked with great success losing perhaps 40 ships to the Persians three or four hundred galleys.
  • Battle of Marathon
    • The Battle of Marathon 490 BC during the Persian Greek Wars. King Darious I of Persia sent his son in law Mardonius to invade Greece in 492 BC.  The Persian Forces conquered Thrace and Macedonia before their fleet was devastated by a storm. Mardonius was forced to return to Asia.  A second Persian invasion force crossed the Aegean sea. After conquering Eretria, the Persian Army under Datis (15,000 strong) landed near Marathon.  (Marathon is 24 miles northeast of Athens.) General Miltiades, general in the Greek army gathered a force of 10,000 Athenians and 1,000 Plataean citizen Soldiers. On the 12th September 490 BC, Miltiades arranged his Greek Hoplites Infantry) in a long line across the 2 mile plain of Marathon. Then the Greek's charged the Persian Lines. the Centre of the Hoplite force was pushed back but the Flanks, broke through the Persian Forces and encircled the Persian Centre.  Datis Persian army was routed and returned to Asia.  The Greek losses was 192 men compared to the Persian losses of 6,400.  This was the first major assault from the Asian Powers against Europe and is considered the first major decisive battles of the world.

Spartan by Chris Collingwood. (P)


Spartan by Chris Collingwood. (P)

In 480 BC the Spartans tried to defend the pass at Thermopylae against the Persians led by Xerxes. The Persian fleet had sailed along the coastline from northern Greece into the Gulf of Malia on the eastern Aegean Sea towards the mountains at Thermopylae. The Greek General and King Leonidas led the Greeks and tried to defend the pass of Thermopylae. All the defending Spartans were killed during the Battle of Thermopylae. Their defence and courage provided inspiration to the Greeks, and the following year the Greeks won battles against their old enemy the Persians.

Alexander the Great crossed the Indus river using makeshift pontoons with 14,000 picked cavalry and infantry. The following day he attacked the flank of King Porus position, after 8 hours of hard fighting, Alexander the Greats army routed the Indians, taking 9,000 prisoner including King Porus and killing 12,000. The Macedonian army lost 980 men and this was the last battle of the Asian conquest as Alexanders army rebelled and refused to go further.
