Plataea (DBM Order of battle)
 The third Greek command (the Megarans and others) had retreated as far as Plataea bythe time the battle started. It starts off table and enters on a die roll. Main sources are Herodotus for the Greeks (he gives the numbers as 50,000 Hoplites and25,000 Light Troops, including cavalry) - he gives the Persian numbers as 300,000!Dupuy reckons about 100,000 Persians and 80,000 Greeks, which is more plausible. The battle started after the Greeks tried a night retreat from the ridge of hills overlookingthe Asopus river during which the three parts of the army became hopelessly separated.Mardonius, seeing his chance, attacked. During the previous 8 days, the armies had staredat each other until Persian cavalry raiding eventually made it hard for the Greeks to getwater, forcing them to try and withdraw. Troop name Troop Type Elem Cost(EE)-----------------------------------------------
