This comprehensive 3-DVD collection from HISTORY® presents some of the finest battles in Greek history - and, according to many, in all of military history. "The Last Stand of the 300" and "Decisive Battles: Thermopylae" recount the famous challenge of 300 Spartan warriors to a mighty, million-man-strong Persian Army, held off for seven bloody days until every Spartan was slain. It’s a battle still taught in military academies today. "Decisive Battles: Marathon" and "Judgment Day at Marathon" explore one of history’s first recorded battles, in which a small Athenian army emerged victorious over the Persians despite being vastly outnumbered. "Troy: The Passion of Helen" is an innovative retelling of the story of the Trojan War from the perspective of the beautiful woman said to be at the heart of it. And "Alexander: Lord of War" follows the great general’s final campaign into India, an episode that proves that deception is the most powerful weapon in battle. This select presentation is sure to delight both military and history buffs alike.
