300’s Battle of Thermopylae

DAILY MUSE | The visionary new movie “300“, now in theatres, is based on the events of the Battle of Thermopylae, a 480 B.C. battle in which the Greeks defended off a Persian invasion– something I had virtually known nothing about. Controversy is brewing with the movie buzz, some comparing it to the situations in Iraq and the Mideast.

This timely documentary outlines the historical background of the battle. It’s a must see before watching the movie– perhaps a tool to help to separate some of the facts from some of the fictions.
