The Battle of Marathon!

The Battle of Marathon is one of history’s most famous military engagements. It is also one of the earliest recorded battles. The Greeks’ victory over the Persian invaders gave the fledgling Greek city states confidence in their ability to defend themselves and belief in their continued existence. The battle is therefore considered a defining moment in the development of European culture.
