An event in the Dagor Bragollach; see that entry for an overview:
[In] the fighting... near to the Pass of Sirion... King Finrod Felagund, hastening from the south, was cut off from his people and surrounded with small company in the Fen of Serech; and he would have been slain or taken, but Barahir came up with the bravest of his men and rescued him, and made a wall of spears about him; and they cut their way out of the battle with great loss. Thus Felagund escaped....

But Barahir... was in the fighting further westward nigh the passes of Sirion. There... Felagund... was defeated and was surrounded with small company in the Fen of Serech. But Barahir came thither with the doughtiest of his men, and broke the leaguer of the Orcs and saved the Elven-king.
