At the beginning of the 5th century BCE, the small, independent city-states of Greece were in danger of being swallowed up by the massive Persian Empire. Had the Greeks not successfully defended their freedom at this critical point in the development of their culture, it is difficult to imagine how different the history of the western world would have been.
Topics covered in this presentation include:
♦ Bronze Age Collapse
♦ Rise of Persia
♦ Ionian Revolts
♦ Battle of Marathon
♦ Xerxes I
♦ Crossing of the Hellespont
♦ Themistocles and the Athenian Navy
♦ Leonidas and the 300 Spartans
♦ Battle of Thermopylae
♦ Burning of Athens
♦ Battle of Salamis
♦ Battle of Plataea
♦ Significance of the Greek Victory
