Sorry, that was the movie; also, hobbit bravery? [In reply to] Can't Post

In the books, Boromir tells the Council of Elrond that Gondor lost Osgiliath and destroyed the last bridge there to prevent Sauron's forces from crossing over.

While he doesn't admit to being afraid himself, his comments below on the Nazgul show that his men were afraid. And anyway, later in Minas Tirith everyone is afraid when they fly overhead.

"...but it was not by numbers that we were defeated. A power was there that we have not felt before...Wherever he came a madness filled our foes, but fear fell on our boldest, so that horse and man gave way and fled."

What I'm never quite sure of myself is Gandalf's explanation to Frodo about the Ford of Bruinen's events. Not only does Glorfindel charge the Nazgul with flaming brands, so do Aragorn and the other three hobbits. How did they do that?
