“They resisted to the last, with their swords, if they had them, and, if not, with their hands and teeth”, Herodotus, Ancient Greek historian. What is to fight for your country like, in a battle which you know you are going to lose? What is to fight for honor and glory like? What is to fight when there is nothing left like? In 480 BC King Leonidas along with 300 elite Spartan warriors came against the biggest war machine of the time, the invading Persian Empire, at the narrow coastal pass of the Hot Gates (Thermopylae) in Greece. This uneven battle remained as one of the most famous last stands in history. Their patriotic devotion became a symbol of courage and self sacrifice, against overwhelming odds. Inspired by the true events, writer Elias Marineas crafting a story of honor and courage, takes us inside the notorious battle of the Hot Gates through the eyes of a Spartan warrior.
