Who has been appointed as strategist by the National Assembly in Athens? How did the inhabitants of Sparta behave? What help did the residents of Plateia provide? How did the Greek troops line up? How did they fight in the war between the Greeks and the Persians in the Battle of Marathon?

For the post of strategist, the Athenians chose Miltiades, who was well versed in military affairs. The Spartans did not refuse help, but they did not act immediately. Only the inhabitants of the city of Plateia sent a thousand soldiers. Miltiades blocked the path of the enemies to Athens. The Persians decided to go around Attica and land in Athens. Then the Greeks decided to fight on the Marathon Plain. They formed a phalanx and fought like madmen. The Persians broke through the Greeks’ battle line in the center, but the edges held out. The warriors at the edges closed the ring. The Persians had to retreat.
