If I were to save any book from the flames it would be 300. It really said something. It said to stand up and fight for what you believe in. First of all, the king of Persia, Xerxies, tries to make Sparta surrender under his control. He says he's a God kind because he is the strongest kind in the world. Then, Lyanidus, King of Sparta, did not want to surrender. So he went to war with 300 of his best soldiers and fought Xerxies' 10,000 men. But in the end the Spartans died doing the right thing.
