Description:

An event in the Siege of Minas Tirith; see that entry for an overview:
'More than one host may issue from [the Black Gate], and strike for more than one passage.'

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 4, The Siege of Gondor

'Fugitives from Cair Andros have already reached us. The isle has fallen. Another army is come from the Black Gate, crossing from the north-east.'

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 4, The Siege of Gondor

The last word to come from outside the walls was brought by... the remnant of the guard that was kept at that point where the way from... Rohan ran into the townlands: Ingold led them....

'The new host that we had tidings of has come first, from over the River by way of Andros, it is said. They are strong: battalions of Orcs of the Eye, and countless companies of Men of a new sort that we have not met before. Not tall, but broad and grim, bearded like dwarves, wielding great axes. Out of some savage land in the wide East they come, we deem. They hold the northward road; and many have passed on into Anórien.'

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 4, The Siege of Gondor
