My young son and I watched “We were Soldiers once and Young” and at the start it says the Cavalry starts off with 394 troops (I think). Later on they say their are 4000 NVA (or something). My son, who learned about the Spartans in class said something like - their odds are even worse than the Spartan’s.
I paused the movie for a bit and told him the little bit of “force multipliers” such as artillery. That, but most importantly, having brave smart men in the fight - especially in leadership.
