A rather thorough book covering the arms and armor craft of Tolkien's Middle-Earth as presented in the Peter Jackson movies. Beautifully illustrated providing historic (within the setting) insight into the design and usage of impliments by all sides.

Faithful to the movie vision of LotR, if not to JRRT's, this is nonetheless an enjoyable and informative look at the weaponry depicted in the movie(s). ( )

As with the movies, these books were fine quality. The detail and information are a joy to read because the passion comes through. Much information about the history of weapons as well. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618391002, Paperback)

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 culture's 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.
