I don't like crowded movie theaters (or crowds for any reason) so I will have to wait a while.

from wikipedia. leonidas

In 480 the ephors sent Leonidas with the 300 men of an all-sire unit (soldiers who had sons to carry on their bloodline) and 6700 allies to hold the pass of Thermopylae against the hundreds of thousands of Persian soldiers who had invaded from the north of Greece under Xerxes. Contemporary accounts claim Leonidas took his small personal fighting unit because Spartan religious customs forbade sending an army at that time of year. In addition, he was deliberately going to his doom: an oracle had foretold that Sparta could be saved only by the death of one of its kings, one of the lineage of Hercules. Instead it seems likely that the ephors supported the plan half-heartedly due to the festival of Carneia and their policy of concentrating the Greek forces at the Isthmus of Corinth.

According to Herodotus, Leonidas' wife Gorgo asked him how she could aid his mission. He responded "marry a good man, bear good children, and live a good life."

Several episodes demonstrate the laconic matter-of-fact bravery that famed Leonidas and the Spartans. On the first day of the siege Xerxes demanded the Greeks surrender their arms. Leonidas replied Μολών Λαβέ ("Come and get them"). This phrase has been re-used by generals and politicians throughout history and often repeated in popular culture. Today it is the emblem of the Greek 1st Army Corps. On the third day, the king exhorted his men to eat a hearty breakfast, because that night they would dine in Hades.

Leonidas' men repulsed the frontal attacks of the Persians for the first two days, but when the Malian Ephialtes led the Persian general Hydarnes by a mountain track to the rear of the Greeks, Leonidas divided his army. The King himself remained in the pass with his 300 Spartans and 400 Thebans, along with 700 Thespians who refused to leave. Leonidas' intent was to delay the Persians, sacrificing himself and his men.

The little Greek force, attacked from both sides, was cut down to a man except for the Thebans, who surrendered. One theory is that Leonidas sent the remainder of his men home to preserve troops for future battles. The soldiers who stayed behind were to protect their escape from the Persian cavalry.

Leonidas fell in the thickest of the fight, but the Spartans retrieved his body and protected it until their final fall to enemy arrows. Herodotus says that Leonidas' head was cut off by Xerxes' order and his body crucified, due to his alleged hatred towards the Spartan King. This was considered sacrilege towards Leonidas, and unusual action on Xerxes' part[1]. Immediately after he ordered the desecration of Leonidas' body, however, Xerxes felt remorse and, forty years later, Leonidas' corpse was returned to the Spartans
