Battle of Thermopylae
One of my favorite battle movies when I was a kid was The 300 Spartans.
It's based on the true story of the battle of Thermopylae where a small ancient Greek force heroically took on a much larger army of invading Persians.
And while I enjoyed the movie, it did suffer from a limited budget.
So I am delighted to see that an updated version is coming out next spring called 300.
Of course, I am always wary that Hollywood will screw up the story, but Victor Davis Hanson gives it good review.
I can't wait.
