Just something to commemorate the badassery of my spartan army in Rome 2 : Total War. One time while moving to intercept an invading force, they were ambushed, outflanked, and was badly outnumbered. Despite having all odds being against them, they made through without being routed. Each one of the Spartans stood their ground and fought against waves of enemies. In the end, the tide turned in their favor, the enemies suffered heavy casualties and began retreating after realizing they were outmatched despite having a larger force.
They just refuse to fall.
