The Lord of the Rings: Weapons and Warfare (ISBN 0-00717201-X) is an illustrated and narrated guide to the battles and race-lore of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings film-trilogy. It was written by Chris Smith in 2003, produced by Arjen Jansen, and published by Harper Collins Publishers (London).

Contents Edit

Following a foreword by Christopher Lee and an insightful introduction by Weta members Richard Taylor and Daniel Falconer, Weapons and Warfare features 214 detailed pages concerning each skirmish, piece of armor, weapon, weapon inscription, monster, insignia, and people-group that appears in the films. The illustrations are mostly cinematic stills - ones included and excluded from the final releases of the films - and less frequently concept-sketches, like those found throughout Gary Russell’s The Art of… series. There are also a few concept-sculptures and maps; some maps are meant to be Elvish, labeled in Tengwar. A glossary finishes the book, of definitions for all technical armor and weaponry-terminologies that had been mentioned.

Canon and purpose Edit

All illustrations and sketches accompany Chris Smith’s ongoing, expository story-telling of the topics’ histories. Some background is external to the true canon of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth: The identity of Elrond’s sword Hadhafang originates from this movie-lore, as do the Sindarin inscriptions on the blades of Hadhafang, Aragorn’s hunting-knife, Gil-galad’s spear Aiglos, and Glamdring. Even the large spear in Moria that the Cave-troll wields to stab Frodo was given a Khuzdul inscription, and the Mouth of Sauron’s helmet a Black Speech inscription. Among its maps, the book also provides graphics of the army-movements and “battle-plans” of each large conflict shown in the films, created by Ben Wooten and Warren Mahy.

Because of these things, Weapons and Warfare serves as a citable reference for movie-facts.
