Military life: Then and Now By: Sarah Mamlouk This has been inspired by the movie 300.
<ul><li>The movie 300 is a tale of the Battle of Thermophylae, were 300 Spartans march to fight the Persian army, with King Leonidas. His army fights over what the movie says a million of Persians and nearly kills them. But because of there small army they all die. Leonidas knows that after this battle there will be no survivors and he later states that they will all die for there country Sparta, which they end up doing. This movie has a very powerful message with in my opinion only aim as high as you think you can and be realistic 300 against almost a million. Who do you think will win? </li></ul>300 the movie summery
