2nd Siege of Rhodes is very impressive (Ottomans versus Knights of St. John).   Though I prefer the first siege.

Thespians were tasked with protecting the route around Thermopylae (one which was used both by Persians and by Celts to bypass main defenses). Remainder of Greeks was at Thermopylae themselves, several thousand in total, of which 300 were Spartans. I don't think Athens contributed any hoplites, being tasked instead with naval battle.

On topic, I'd nominate Iwo Jima. Defense system built by Kuribayachi's men was quite well-designed.
