Easily one of the most famous last stands in history would be the Battle of Thermopylae, which pitted 300 Spartans against 250,000 Persians. In the modern world, most people believe that the Spartans’ numbers were 300, but historians believe their numbers were closer to 7,000 while the Persians were between 100,000 to 300,000. Either way, this battle showed how a few men can wipe out half their enemies before being overrun. In the end of the first volume of my spin-off fantasy series, I will be depicting a similar battle where over 600 men battle an enemy force that outnumbers them ten to one. Also, like Thermopylae, my battle will make use of a bottleneck to make it a more even and intense fight.
