Where Could I Read More About The Battles in Rohan? Can't Post

Is there a HoME or other work that goes into the details about the battles/raids in Rohan during the War of the Ring? Especially about Theodred and campaign?

Thanks!

Unfinished Tales [In reply to] Can't Post

There is a section in Unfinished Tales called "The Battles of the Fords of Isen" that goes into some detail about the battles you are asking about, including describing the death of Theodred at some length.

ETA: You will undoubtedly find the writing to be meandering, the prose over-wrought, and the characters not fully fleshed out. Wink

Ha! Well, that's what the Unfinished Tales is all about, though. I'll check that out. I know I have a copy somewhere.

You're very witty, and I don't mind laughing at myself one bit ;)

I've seen (and occasionally been guilty of) much thin-skinnedness over the years.
