Disambiguation notice
This, The End of the Third Age, includes only the-writing-of The Lord of the Rings material, being a selection - of Part One only - from an earlier book titled Sauron Defeated (which included non-LOTR Parts Two and Three also).

Note also this is not the same LT Work as Book VI of The Lord of the Rings itself, which has the same title "The End of the Third Age". Please do not combine.
