Last Stand of the 300 & Other Famous Greek Battles
(Full Frame, Dolby, 3 Pack)
This comprehensive 3-DVD collection from History presents some of the finest battles in Greek history and, according to many, in all of military history. THE LAST STAND OF THE 300 and DECISIVE BATTLES: THERMOPYLAE recount the famous challenge of 300 Spartan warriors to a mighty, million-man-strong Persian Army, held off for seven bloody days until every Spartan was slain. It's a battle still taught in military academies today. DECISIVE BATTLES: MARATHON and JUDGMENT DAY AT MARATHON explore one of history's first recorded battles, in which a small Athenian army emerged victorious over the Persians despite being vastly outnumbered. TROY: THE PASSION OF HELEN is an innovative retelling of the story of the Trojan War from the perspective of the beautiful woman said to be at the heart of it. And ALEXANDER: LORD OF WAR follows the great generals final campaign into India, an episode that proves that deception is the most powerful weapon in battle. This select presentation is sure to delight both military and history buffs alike.
