After a brief analysis of the medieval nature of the arms, armor, and troops in the War of the Ring, examines the strategic advantages and disadvantages of both sides. Postulates Sauron’s “poverty of imagination” as a fatal flaw. The realistic depiction of military strategy gives The Lord of the Rings a feeling of “true” history.
