From the time he could stand, he was baptized in the fire of combat. Taugh never to retreat, never to surrender. Taugh that death on the battlefield in service to Sparta, was the greatest glory he could achieve in his life. And so the boy, given up for dead, returns to his people, to sacred Sparta, a king! THIS IS SPARTA!!! Spartans! Prepare for a glory! A thousand nations of the Persian Empire descend upon you. Our arrows will blot out the sun. Then we will fight in the shade. This is where we hold them! This is where we fight! This is where they die! Give them nothing, but take from them everything! No mercy! Slaughter them! Spartans! What is your profession? We will stand & fight! An age of freedom! And all we know that 300 Spartans, gave their last breath to defend it!
