Description:

An event in the preludes to the Battle of the Morannon and the Destruction of the One Ring; see those entries for an overview:
[The] Dark Lord had almost completed the movement of his forces, and even in the fastness of his own realm he sought the secrecy of night, fearing the winds of the world that had turned against him, tearing aside his veils, and troubled with tidings of bold spies that had passed through his fences.

The land all about was dreary.... On the roads... nothing was moving now....

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 6, Ch 3, Mount Doom

Neither man nor orc now moved along its flat grey stretches....

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 6, Ch 3, Mount Doom

All the land now brooded as at the coming of a great storm: for the Captains of the West had passed the Cross-roads and set flames in the deadly fields of Imlad Morgul.
