High on a narrow mountain pass in 480 B.C., a small Greek army awaits an onslaught of epic proportions. Led by just 300 Spartan soldiers, they somehow hold off the colossal Persian military for seven full days - until not one Greek warrior is left standing.
The legendary battle of Thermopylae is still acknowledged today for its brilliant military maneuvers and the well-trained and fearless soldiers who fought to the death. THE HISTORY CHANNEL® presents a detailed account of this legendary battle, examining the events leading up to the conflict, the tactical expertise that allowed the outnumbered Greeks to stall their mighty foes, and the bloody encounter itself. Find out how an army of a few hundred men overcame impossible odds and witness the conflict that altered the course of Western civilization.
Combining sophisticated digital animation and live actors in strikingly realistic reenactments, LAST STAND OF THE 300 narrates one of the most important - and improbable - battles in history.
If you liked the movie "300" as much as I did, you'll definitely enjoy the documentary.
What I particularly liked was that the documentary focused both on the land battle of the Spartans and sea battle of the Athenian fleet.
I really enjoy this time in history and found this video to be very interesting and a great way to learn more about this great batle.
I love watching men being real men, no guns just strength and force. Girls do yourself a favor watch. GreatPublished 2 months ago by irene gaillard
I used this video in my world history class and they loved it. It does a great job of supplementing our study of that period. Thanks.Published 4 months ago by tim
Very good description and reenactments, but a little to slow from time to timePublished 4 months ago by cap78228
A great docu. This is surrounded merely in myth but the story is fascinating. About 300 men that took on at least 100,000 if not 1million Persians for three days. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Mr. Bubles
