Athens turned the 180-city Delian League it led against the Persians into an empire of its own after peace was made with Persia. Using this power Athens tried to dominate the Greek world, becoming more and more intrusive and adventurous. The Peloponnesian League led by Sparta opposed this, resulting in the devastating 27-year Peloponnesian War, which Athens lost and was stripped of its empire, becoming a second rate power.

What were the Immortals?

Hi,I guess you are you are referring to the Persian Immortals (the ones you can see in the movie 300).They were the elite fighting force of ancient Persia."The Achaemenid Persian Immortals, usually referred to as the Persian Immortals or The Immortals were an elite force of Persian soldiers who performed the dual roles of both Imperial Guard and standing army during the Achaemenid Empire's expansion and during the Greco-Persian Wars. Herodotus describes the Immortals as being heavy infantry led by Hydarnes that were kept constantly at a strength of exactly 10,000 men (also written as the "Ten Thousand Immortals") - every killed, seriously wounded or sick member was immediately replaced with a new one, maintaining the cohesion of the unit. [1] The regiment accepted only Median, Elamite or Persian applicants."Source:

What if Germany had won World War?

depends if you are talking about WW1 or WW2 . If you are talking about WW1 it would be literally paradise on Earth . WW1 really would have been a war to end all wars ( obviously not all , but no WW2 or major wars ) . this would allow humanity to develop . Africa would be more developed & the Balkans , with only Bulgaria as the major power , would mean no genocide against the Macedonians ( by Greece ) , Albanians ( first be Greece then by Serbia ) or Bosnians ( by Serbia ) . there would be no more genocides . If you are talking about world war 2 then only some groups would be happy but most would suffer .
