Its 2500 years since one of the most important battles of the West against Asia. The Marathon battle took place in 13th of August of 490 BC. Hellas crushed Persia and its allies in Marathon in a battle beyond any hope. If Hellas had lost the war Europe would be very different today. Perhaps there will no Europe at all. Marathon is perhaps the most important battle ever in history. Below you`ll find the full details of the battle in a very nice HISTORY CHANNEL documentary. Its in simple and plain English, so its easy to be seen by everyone.
