I re-read this chapter recently as research for an RP I'm in on another board, and the ending actually made me tear up!

^ I agree with you glorfindil.

That chapter is very touching and well written. It does the same to me.

Yes it is. I was inspired to write the 2nd part of Recollections of a Dunedain Ranger after reading this chapter one night. Its one I come back to read on its own every now and then.

I agree. Its a very moving chapter. I become so absorbed whenever I read it. Tolkien is just amazing that way.

I guess what gets me about this chapter is the last bit were the dead are mentioned. The way that the deeds are spoken about of a few mentioned, and the mention that there were many that fell.... it saddens me every time I read it. Kinda like when I read of world war 1 and the fallen at Fromelles and Argonne.... having relatives affected by these battles really kind of brings it home when I read of Halbarad not ever returning north to his family....

Yeah, throughout that whole chapter I was so invested. What with Eowyn's defeat of the witch king, Theoden's death, Eomer's reaction to Eowyn being there, and the list of the dead at the end. Oh man. I was basically in tears the whole time. Good sad tears.

Yes, Battle of the Pelennor Field is one of the most gripping battle chapters along with Helms Deep. I always cry a bit when reading the part of the deaths at the end of the chapter. :'-(
