About the Book
The history of J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional world of Middle-earth is filled with epic battles in an ongoing struggle between good and evil. The Battles of Tolkien recounts many of the greatest conflicts over thousands of years, from the earliest skirmishes of the Valarian Ages to the defining battles in the War of the Ring. Insightful commentary by Tolkien scholar David Day discusses how the people, tactics, and weapons influenced the outcome of each battle, and also how the legends of Middle-earth relate to the real-world mythology on which Tolkien based his famous literary creation. Maps and full-color illustrations help bring this rich universe to life, making it an invaluable reference book for Tolkien fans of all ages.

My Take on the Book
This was a beautiful book! As a person that has been a HUGE fan of the Tolkien books in the past I was looking forward to reading this. The book is definitely a collectible and the leather-bound book contains images that were stunning too. I found the book to be very interesting and the author's insights really were eye-opening and ones that I had not thought of in the past. You will gain a better understanding of the Tolkien world as well as a great understanding of the characters, battles, weapons and more. Any fan of Tolkien will want to read this!
