The decisive battle of the final war in Gondor's Wars with the Wainriders; see that entry for a description of the enemy and a timeline of the wars:

[After winning the Battle against the Haradrim at Poros:]
Hastening north, he gathered to him all that he could of the retreating Northern Army and came up against the main camp of the Wainriders, while they were feasting and revelling, believing that Gondor was overthrown and that nothing remained but to take the spoil. Eärnil stormed the camp and set fire to the wains, and drove the enemy in a great rout out of Ithilien. A great part of those who fled before him perished in the Dead Marshes.

[Note: the dates are estimated from the dates of the Battle against the Haradrim at Poros plus a guess of the distance and travel time from South Ithilien to North Ithilien.]
