Event Type: Military/Strategic

Age: 3rd Age - Ring War

Date: March 8, 3019

Description:

An event in the prelude to the Siege of Minas Tirith; see that entry for an overview:
'There is a great fleet drawing near to the mouths of Anduin, manned by the corsairs of Umbar in the South. They have long ceased to fear the might of Gondor, and they have allied them with the Enemy, and now make a heavy stroke in his cause. For this attack will draw off much of the help that we looked to have from Lebennin and Belfalas, where folk are hardy and numerous.'

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 1, Minas Tirith

'The Captains of the Outlands are expected up the South Road ere sundown. Come with us and you will see.'....

'Forlong!' men shouted. 'True heart, true friend! Forlong!' But when the men of Lossarnach had passed they muttered: 'So few! Two hundreds, what are they? We hoped for ten times the number. That will be the new tidings of the black fleet. They are sparing only a tithe of their strength. Still every little is a gain.'

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 1, Minas Tirith
