the command of Gandalf the White, the men of Gondor defended Minas
Tirith, the Kingdom of Gondor, from within the city walls against the
siege of Sauron. Greatly outnumbered by Saurons armies, the Gondorian
infantry did not stand a chance in open war. Miraculously, with the use
of their trebuchets and archers, the Gondorian army held their own until
the nine Nazgūl, upon their fell beasts, swooped in destroying the
trebuchets and forcing men to flee their posts. This distraction allowed
the trolls to push their siege towers in, unleashing scores of orcs onto
the walls of the city, and allowing the release of Mordors greatest
weapon Grond, a 150 foot iron battering ram shaped like a wolf. The
gates of the city would not hold, driving the Gondorians back into the
third level of the city.
With much of the lower levels of Gondor in flames, it seemed as if it
was on the verge of a catastrophic defeat, until suddenly the Riders of
the Rohirrim appeared on the horizon, closing in and driving the armies
of Mordor away from the city, thus ending the siege upon Gondor and
entering into the Battle of the Pelennor fields. Although the Gondorians
were technologically advanced compared to most races of Middle-earth,
the design of the helm carries details reminiscent of Numenor. The
barbut style helm one piece, shoulder-length, and open-faced finished
off the suit of steel plate armor that a Gondorian infantryman wore. The
smooth finish and flared bottom of the helm offered better neck
protection, allowing blows to be deflected away from the body. Adorned
on the sides of the helm are seabird wings,a familiar Gondorian motif.
