Otherwise, they all are in for a terrible death. Without succumbing to intimidation of distant guests, brave Spartans deal with them, throwing them into a deep well.
Oracles predict the brave Leonid defeat infierce battle, but the king does not intend to listen to anyone and acts to the gorge to intercept a huge army of Persians. A squad of Spartans blocks the way for enemy soldiers in a strategically important place that can not be avoided. It is called the Fiery Gates or the Farmapil Gorge.
Proud Leonid does not accept the help of a local residentnamed Ephialta. The hunchback wanted to fight side by side with the soldiers in the front line, but instead received permission only to take care of the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. In desperation, who is left out of work, he throws away his weapons, which he kept for many years. The Persians approach the strategically important gates and offer the last time to fold the enemy swords and spears. On which they receive a categorical refusal.
Brave warriors Sparta beat one after anotherwaves of attacks, superior to their number of Persian soldiers. Xerxes, struck by the courage of Leonid and his men, offers him a high rank and authority for a peace agreement, but again receives a categorical refusal. None of the brave warriors of Sparta is going to surrender and intends to fight to the last drop of blood. They with mother's milk in their incredible country have absorbed a sense of courage and dignity and bow their head not to any, even the most powerful, enemy. Better a proud death than a humiliating defeat.</ p>
