Summary, etc.:
At Thermopylae, a rocky mountain pass in northern Greece, Spartan soldiers stood three hundred strong. Theirs was a suicide mission, to hold the pass against the invading Persian army. Day after day they withstood the terrible onslaught, buying time for the Greeks to rally their forces. Born into a cult of spiritual courage, physical endurance, and unmatched battle skill, the Spartans would be remembered for the greatest military stand in history -- one that would not end until the rocks were awash with blood, leaving only one gravely injured Spartan squire to tell the tale. In Gates of Fire, Steven Pressfield portrays the boldest & bloodiest battle fought by the legendary Spartan Army against the Persian Empire.
