Did make a d**n good flick though! A more realistic one on modern times is a flick caled "None but The Spartans." Not very popular flick but parts so very true.

After this battle, the Greeks defeated the Persians at the naval battle of Salamis. With the destruction in a storm of the bridge of boats, the Persian emperor decided that he had other things to do and left with a large part of his army. What he left were defeated by the Greeks at Plataea.
