Ten years after the battle of Marathon, the new glorious Persian king Xerxis, cannot sleep in his royal house. He has to come back, destroy Athens and punish Greece.
His endless army invades Greece, while his fleet surrounds Athens by sea, blocking the Saronic gulf.
Leonidas, king of Sparta, faithful servant to the laws of his city, is sacrificed together with his 300 brave warriors in Thermopylae, postponing significantly the Persian armies. Deenekis, our hero, dies in glory with his king in Thermopylae.
In Salamina straits, the lean Greek fleet destroys the heavy Persian fleet.
Themistoklis, the Athenian commander general, addresses his men and sailors after the new victory, by pointing out how spiritual forces can give such strength to outnumbered soldiers against numerous forces.
