"An opportunity to view the origins of one of the twentieth century's most popular and substantive works of fiction." --Hartford Courant --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
'The War of the Ring' takes up the story of 'The Lord of the Rings' with the Battle of Helm’s Deep and the drowning of Isengard by the Ents, continues with the journey of Frodo, Sam and Gollum to the Pass of Cirith Ungol, describes the war in Gondor, and ends with the parley between Gandalf and the ambassador of the Dark Lord before the Black Gate of Mordor. Unforeseen developments that would become central to the narrative are seen at the moment of their emergence: the palantir bursting into fragments on the stairs of Orthanc, its nature as unknown to the author as to those who saw it fall, or the entry of Faramir into the story (‘I am sure I did not invent him, I did not even want him, though I like him, but there he came walking through the woods of Ithilien’).
The book is illustrated with plans and drawings of the changing conceptions of Orthanc, Dunharrow, Minas Tirith and the tunnels of Shelob’s Lair.See all Product Description

I can not recommend this book (and volume 1 and 2) strong enough. This is an absolutely "Must Read", not just for fans of the fantasy genre, but for everybody who loves a marvellous tale.
