The Lord of the Rings: Weapons and Warfare by Chris Smith
Lavishly illustrated with 1,000 photos, paintings, maps, sculptures and sketches, most appearing here for the first time, Weapons and Warfare is an indispensable chronicle of The Lord of the Rings many creatures, warriors, armies and battlegrounds. From the graceful and proficient Elves to the horrendous war machines of the Dark Lord, each cultures approach to warfare is explained - how they fought, why they were fighting, what armor they wore and what weapons they used against their enemies. Now you can get as close to a marauding Orc as you could ever wish, without suffering the consequences!
Treating the filmmakers notes, designs and props as a true archive, Weapons and Warfare describes in detail every major conflict depicted in the film trilogy - from The Last Alliance of Elves and Men to the climactic Battle of the Pelennor Fields - each accompanied by a battle diagram from the films chief designers.
Armed with a wealth of fascinating facts and unique imagery, and with an exclusive foreword by Christopher Lee and an introduction by the Academy Award winner Richard Taylor, Weapons and Warfare promises to be the most striking companion to The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy published to date.
Middle-earth weapons and armour
The works of JRR Tolkien have inspired people to study the various aspects of the world he created. Here follows a study of this equipment. Since the topic at hand is armor and weapons, it can be here noted that in this matter the First to Third Ages of Middle Earth had a parallel to those later Ages. The predominant type of body armor was a coat of chain mail with a light helm either conical or round. The oldest descriptions of fighting equipment are not very detailed, but there are some clues.
There are a plethora of powerful weapons in the series capable of allowing their wielders to perform feats that go beyond human understanding. Regardless of race or lineage, there are several reasons why such powerful weapons are feared by the inhabitants of Middle-earth. Some are so powerful that the mere sight of them instills fear in the hearts of the wielder's enemies. Despite not having any other use, the Black Arrow is still a powerful tool in the hands of an expert bowman. Unlike most weapons on this list, the Morgul-blades are not known for their durability.
