It was interrupted for years.

On a technical level, why is it that and Xerxes are laid out horizontally instead of vertically? Boy, is that hard. They built for war while the Athenians built for progress.

The 300 spartans

People are very resilient and cultures are very persistent. No, no. Boy, is that hard. Video game adaptation[ edit ]. I think it worked beautifully. That was a rather nice touch as well. These passions really come out in the telling of these doomed warriors of Sparta. This is a much longer view on the whole subject. There is also a bit of romanticizing of the Spartans here. I'm not saying it was homophobic ; just wasn't very well researched.

The terrain prevents the Greeks from being overwhelmed by Xerxes' superior numbers a military tactic usually called " defeat in detail ". Continue Reading. Our version would probably be the Alamo, in terms of the overwhelming size of the enemy.

Battle of thermopylae

Well, everything from the Persian Empire and the Greek Empire is a real study in how the course of the world — of civilizations and the power therein — could be changed so radically. During a break in the fighting, Xerxes meets with Leonidas and offers wealth and power in exchange for his surrender. The Spartans fight. Also in Hell and Back when Wallace is drugged he sees his friend as Leonidas with a machine gun. He brought both cultures together as much as he conquered one. Saying what? King Xerxes offers the Spartans to surrender and pay supplication to him as well as the rest of Greece, and he will leave them alone. Instead, we are being told a story, a tale as told by the one Spartan who was sent back and I can imagine telling this tale around a campfire. As with many comics and graphic novels, I've seen the movie before I read the book. What, exactly, was its relationship with the second movie, Rise of an Empire?

In Sin City : The Big Fat KillDwight McCarthy considers Leonidas' choice of "where to fight" and manages to loosely recreate the Spartan defense tactics by cornering the enemy gang in a tight alley; they then annihilate them with heavy gunfire and explosives.

That specific example probably says more about Frank's grasp of history than it does about his grasp of homosexuality, so I'm not impugning his moral situation there.

It is impossible to know for certain whether this change in policy regarding the Carnea was based in shame about missing Marathon as Brin suggests or merely marked a reinterpretation of the military threat posed by the invading Persians. To me, the largest issue is the concept of civilization itself, and the clash between Western and Eastern points of view, which has been ongoing ever since.

The same issues do exist. Oh, I have to refer to it.

If I wrote to please grievance groups, my work would be propaganda. That was news to me. Are we going to see travel through time? On a technical level, why is it that and Xerxes are laid out horizontally instead of vertically? The work was collected as a hardcover volume in The Story tells the story of three hundred Spartan warriors, the bodyguard of the Spartan King Leonidas, who together with simple peasant warriors stand against the armada of King Xerxes of Persia. The overarching theme of this is the rise and fall of the Persian Empire and the rise of Alexander. The deformity of Ephialtes is also Miller's addition. The "shopkeepers" whom Leonidas outrageously and ungratefully despises in the film. Much of the comic is done in huge oversized panels, twice the size of normal reproduction work. The Spartans were famous for something other than holding the bridge at Thermopylae, they were quite famous for actually enforcing man-boy love amongst the ranks as a way of military bonding. Leonidas throws his spear at Xerxes, intending to make the "God-King" bleed, and succeeds. The Spartans toured the battlefield at Marathon, and agreed that the Athenians had won a great victory.
