Description:

An event in the prelude to the War of the Last Alliance and the Disaster of the Gladden Fields; see those entries for an overview:
There can be no doubt that Sauron, well-informed of the Alliance, had sent out such Orc-troops of the Red Eye as he could spare, to do what they could to harry any forces that attempted to shorten their road by crossing the Mountains.... [They] remained alert and watchful, determined to attack any companies of Elves or Men that they outnumbered.... [Some] bided their time, for the most part hidden in the Forest, while others lurked along the riverbanks.... [Author's note.]
