    Battle of Marathon - Greek victory

    Persian King Darius wanted to punish the Athenians

    for helping the Ionians during their rebellion. Greeks

    led by Miltiades, used the "natural geography"

    against the Persians:

    1)Battle took place between two mountains.

    2)Persians couldn't use cavalry (couldn't get horses

    on marshy land). Persians were drawn into the

    Greek's purposely weakened center allowing Greek

    forces to surround them.

    Battle of Salamis - Greek victory

    Greek naval leader, Themistocles,

    used "natural geography " to force

    the larger Persian fleet, led by

    Xerxes, to advance a fewer number

    of their ships into battle with the

    smaller Greek fleet.

    Battle of Thermopylae - Persians

    won BUT many Greeks considered

    it a victory

    Greeks, led by Leonidas, used the "natural

    geography"- a narrow pass, against the Persians.

    Once again Persians, led by King Xerxes, could not

    use their cavalry. Leonidas and his Spartans held

    off the Persians so other Greek soldiers could

    return home to unite and defend the Greeks

    against Xerxes' forces.
