I got an Osprey Publishing Newsletter today. In it was a link to a great article by Dr. Kaveh Farrokh about the movie 300 and how it differs from actual history. I'll be the first to admit, I liked the movie, and yes, I know it was way off base historically speaking, but it is nice to hear an academic talk about the faults. A lot of insight into the armies of Iran, their culture, and their point of view on the invasion of Greece. Very good good reading. It's a .pdf file so you'll need Adobe Reader.
