The Battles of Tolkien by David Day....Review and Giveaway!




I have another unique Father's Day gift idea for you guys! The Battles of Tolkien by David Day. For those of you who don't know, Tolkien is the creator of wildly popular books such as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. This book is an in-depth look at the battles and is must for any Tolkien fan. Here is the scoop....

The history of J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional world of Middle-earth is filled with epic battles in an ongoing struggle between good and evil. The Battles of Tolkien recounts many of the greatest conflicts over thousands of years, from the earliest skirmishes of the Valarian Ages to the defining battles in the War of the Ring. Insightful commentary by Tolkien scholar David Day discusses how the people, tactics, and weapons influenced the outcome of each battle, and also how the legends of Middle-earth relate to the real-world mythology on which Tolkien based his famous literary creation. Maps and full-color illustrations help bring this rich universe to life, making it an invaluable reference book for Tolkien fans of all ages.

Our Thoughts:  First of all, I want to tell you about the cover.  It is lovely.  It is flexibound in leatherette which means it has a rich, buttery feel in your hands.  Inside fans will find history and battles explained, in-depth with detailed pictures like these....



As well as intricate maps.  Each page is a wealth of information for fans and the colorful illustrations are the icing on the cake.  If there is a Tolkien fan in your life (everyone has one!) this book would be a thoughtful and well-loved gift.  You can purchase it on Amazon....
I am so excited to tell you one lucky Reviewed by Mom follower will win a copy of The Battles of Tolkien by David Day. Thanks so much to the sponsor and good luck! a Rafflecopter giveaway

I would love to win this for my husband. He's the only person I know the have multiply copies of Lord of the Ring books not because of collecting them but because he loses on copy around the house and can't find it so he'll buy another one. Thats one of the only books he's read multiple times. He's not a really huge or avid reader either. So yes I think this would be perfect for him. Something he would love since it shows drawing and intricate maps.
