Recollections of a Dunedain Ranger

Ch. 4: Battle of the Pelennor - The Aftermath...

I love the idea of someone paying respect to those who gave their lives to protect Middle Earth by writing in their name and giving an account of the battles they fought. Again, you manage to reflect the harsh reality of that very well, especially in the first paragraph where you talk of the smell of death and of people looking for their loved ones. The entire story reveals the human dimension and the tragedy of war. The description of 'men fighting men' works very well for that, as does the narrator's personal experience of receiving and inflicting wounds.

I was also very moved by Hanasian's interactions with the wounded men. What do you say to them indeed?
