The victory gave a boost to the confidence of the Athenians, who felt that “at Marathon we were the only ones to face up to th... ... middle of paper ... ...arta to play greater roles in battle. This produced a tension between the city-states that nearly allowed the Persians to claim victory. The Greeks turned to Apollo, but the oracle did not encourage them. The Greek forces continued to fight, however, driven by acts of bravery performed by Athens and Sparta. Though the Greeks did not achieve complete unity or receive absolute encouragement from the gods, they had enough bravery and faith to bring them success in the Persian Wars.

On the 25th of March 1821, the Greeks’ fight for independence from the Turks began. After years of numerous battles, Greece was able to gain their independence in 1829, although it was not officially recognized by the world until 1833. Out of desperation, the Greeks called out for support from foreign nations. Many answered their call, and their independence would not have been achievable without the help of their allies, who were mainly the French, Russia, and Great Britain. The philhellenes, or Greece-loving people, in those countries would rally support for Greece.

Ancient Greek Philosophical Views are Still Relevant Toda As a strategy to defeat the invading Persians during the Persian War, the poleis (Greek city-states) of Greece united in order to form one large military force. Following the war, Greece decided to adhere to this idea of unity and form the Delian League in order to protect Greece from Persian domination. However, many of the poleis begin to resent the fact that the polis of Athens held a roll at the top of the League. This tension leads to a war between Athens and Sparta, known as the Peloponnesian War. As a result, writers such as Thucydides, Plato, and Aristotle developed their own views on the effects of the war.
